These are unusual-looking plants, related to our native lords-and-ladies, but with more exotic colouration and leaf form. Rather than a traditional flower, they all have a spathe (hood-like), which can be one colour, like Arisaema tortuosum or vividly striped like Arisaema candidissimum, which can be green and white, or candy-pink and white. The flowers are small, hidden away on the spadix, which is 'protected' by the spathe. However on some species the spadix exerts itself 30cm plus out from the shelter of the spathe. A curious thing. Give them dappled shade and a reasonable soil, not bone dry. They can be grown in pots, but make sure these don't get too wet over winter.
