One of the easiest to grow, but spectacular, is the giant Arisaema consanguineum. The flowers have a purple-green spathe with narrow, white, vertical stripes and a hood with a filamentous tail-like tip. The spathe encloses the club-like spadix (itself extended by a whiplash tail), which has all over its surface hundreds of tiny flowers. In late summer, the spathe withers and exposes a head of tightly packed red-orange berries. A slender tall plant (to 2 meters!) with mottled snake skin patterned stems. Prefers a humus rich moist shady spot.
