Arisaema flower

(Almost) Silent Sunday: Arisaema

NB: A note for WordPress Reader users – you need to click on the title of the post again to see the full photograph. (Otherwise you see just a tiny section!)

It may look slightly sinister as it lurks in the shade, but this plant isn’t carnivorous. The deep flowers are this shape to make sure that they are pollinated by insects. The insects aren’t on its menu!

  1. When I saw this, my first thought was “Jack in the Pulpit” and that’s what it is. Our native species is Arisaema triphyllum, but I’ve never seen it marked with so much purple. This one’s a beauty.
