This quirky Arisaema hails from Nepal and Tibet. The name ''exappendiculatum'' means without a male appendage. This plant has wonderful whorled umbrella like foliage atop tall stems. For us this plant flowers in November with a nearly closed erect spathe.
It is most important to site these plants in a shady spot where the bulbs will remain dry over winter. If the bulbs are wet during winter they will rot out. Arisaemas are best planted in the same situation as Hosta's. They will naturally go dormant in autumn and winter. Fertiliser can be applied but is not essential.
