Green Dragon (Arisaema dracontium)

from 9.95

Green dragon has only 1 leaf, but the leaf stem forks so that there appear to be 2 separate leaves, each divided into 5–15 unequal leaflets. A separate flower stalk holds the perennial’s unique blossom, a narrow, greenish, hooded, cylinder with a long, upward-pointing “tongue.” The white flowers are very small, with no petals or sepals, which turn into orange-red berries.  This plant is considered relatively rare.  Native to woodlands and streambanks, this perennial likes humusy soil with constant moisture. 1-3 ft. tall.

Zone: 4-9

Light: part shade to shade
