General Description

Arisaema amurense is a tuberous herbaceous perennial native to Northeast Asia. In late spring, it bears a purple- and white-striped spathe with a green spadix, overtopped by one or two large, spoked, compound leaves. Bright red berries ornament the spadix in fall.

This plant prefers moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil and partial shade. It makes an excellent addition to a shade garden.
