A few views of my Arisaema consanguineum in flower, which I just noticed today.
This species gets to a metre tall eventually, but mine are young plants and this is the smallest of them, measuring about 40cm high, currently. Note the ridiculously long, whiskery spathe limb and lizardy stripiness. Very choice.
Arisaemas grow from corms that range in size from peanut through to car tyre, some of them being used as commercial sources of edible starch, others in traditional medicine; consanguineum is one of them but its bulb is chock-a-block with oxalic acid and raphides and is therefore pretty toxic without expert preparation. Don't grate it onto your salad.
Viva aroids. I grow a few species, but I wish they were more readily available here in New Zealand.
