Arisaema dracontium

Common name: Green Dragon

Native plant

The Green Dragon is one of the more curious flowers of our local woodlands and savannas. It is a relative of Jack-in-the-Pulpit and grows under similar conditions, but really couldn't be more different in appearance. The flower is held on its own stalk in a tight little bundle with a long, bright yellow “tail”. The leaf is also an cool piece of botanical architecture, looking like a crescent moon with leaflets sticking out at right angles from the blade. The flower fades in August but the leaf will remain visible until October.

Available in quarts. Call for info.
