    One of the more visually arresting species seen in western gardens.

    That's truly lovely, makes me wish I could grow Arisaema myself. But I'm brown thumbs when it comes to seasonal aroids....

    Togata - large purple/green alternating stripes on the front, wrapping to the craquelure design along the waist and into the back where it merges back with the large stripes, and fine pinstripe on the sleeves? It would be a really neat batik design.

    Indeed, lorax!
    Wouldn't it be great if some enterprising and ecologically-minded clothing designer would not only use the colors and patterns of nature, but put them on fabrics woven from natural fibers? And send some of the sales profits back into tree-planting or preservation? And run a 'green' shop, with solar panels, recycling, etc.?

    Like I don't have enough on my plate already, lol! As soon as this season's crop of bananas comes down, I'm going to experiment with making drill/canvas from the pseudostems, and a lighter cambric or something from the petiole sheath fibres....

    What a photo! How big is this plant? 18 inches? Do I see euphorbia and pachysandra and cimicifuga in the background? Is this Jack in the Pulpit's flashy cousin?

    My favorite of this family here in the states! We have the solid green and purple/green patterned ones....have always wanted to see the white/green/purple that grows there in the East.
    I grow the other 2 species in my garden...and photograph constantly out in the wooded areas here.
    Fabulous flower and mosquito eater!

    Hi Jonny, sorry for delay in reply. Yes indeed, Pachysandra terminalis, Euphorbia hyberna but the cut leaved purple is Sambucus nigra 'Black Lace'.
