SKU: ari_tri_000 Categories:
Arisaema triphyllum has low-growing stalks topped with three leaflets that rise from a tuberous root in early spring. These are followed by a distinctive hooded flower on its own stalk.  The green flower with dark purplish stripes resembles a pitcher plant and is followed by a conical cluster of bright red berries in late summer.  Naturally occurring in moist, low-lying wooded areas, especially those that seasonally flood, this plant requires consistent moisture and rich soils.
