For an encore, Arisaema sikokianum may produce densely packed spikes of red berries. This lovely Jack-in-the-Pulpit will prosper in moderately rich, well-drained soil.
HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery.

Rowanshire from Northbridge, MA
This is a very unique plant. Be careful where you place it though, as I had it a bit back in the shade garden and accidentally stepped on it this spring, ruining the flower. It's better towards the front, especially since it is so striking. Even the leaves are interesting. Only drawback is it is painfully slow to clump. I have only ONE flower, and it's been in the ground 2 years. I am in Zone 5, Massachusetts and it reliably comes back.

I ordered this flower at the very end of the spring season and it was shipped immediately. I planted it the day after I received and was surprised that it came up right away. I didn't expect it to do much this year since it was already late June but it was lovely! This is an unusual plant and brings a great exotic element to the garden. I will order another next spring.

I was a bit dubious when I took the dried up little tuber from the bag it was packed in. Would this really become a plant? After making sure that the soil PH was correct, I pressed the hazelnut sized thing into the ground about an inch deep, put a placement marker next to it and hoped for the best. Two months later, I had a spectacular flower glowing in the shade of my garden. I couldn't have been more pleased. I'm looking forward to next Spring, and keeping my fingers crossed that it might have increased.

I was not familiar with this plant, but my husband was. I did think it would be perfect for one of our fountains in our Meditation/Spirit Garden. It did not let us down. It's like the ugly duck who blooms into a swan. Words can't describe the beauty of this little gem in that corner of the garden. Well worth the money.

CULTURE: Hardiness zones 5-9S/W. Height 18-24inches. Space 18-24inches apart. Plant in partially shaded site in neutral to acid soil, moist woodland soil, or well-drained soil amended with well-rotted leaves, compost, or other organic matter such as peat moss. Morning sun is okay but not the afternoon sun. Adding an inch of compost or humus to the area each spring is all the fertilizing that it needs. Plant the top of the tuber with the slightly pointed end up about 1-2in deep. Can multiply quickly under good growing conditions,as it often self-sows.
SUGGESTED USE: In woodland or shady gardens.
PROBLEMS: Few insect or disease problems if grown in well-drained soil.
