Arum - Asarum

ARUM Hey, they're cool (well, actually they are exothermic; the spathes heat up to help attract flies which they trap till the pollen is ripe and then release), and trendy, and very collectable, and besides that most of the flowers smell of dead meat. If you have never grown them, we urge you to try a few. Many of the species produce winter foliage, which looks great in the winter garden a bit further south; here it is usually under the snow however I still admire them as much for their foliage as for their spectacular flowers, not to mention the fantastic clusters of red fruit. A woodland garden without arums is a sad excuse for a woodland garden. What more can I say - you gotta have em all.

Asarum splendens ex Wild China

Asarum splendens ex Wild China

One of the larger flowered Chinese species and one of the easiest, this may or may not be conspecific with Asarum magnificum. The taxonomy is confused with many Chinese imports appearing under a variety of names. We fear it may be a while before everything is properly sorted out in the meantime enjoy the plants and don't get too freaked about the names. For what its worth these are the H & H version.___ZONE 4
