This tall cousin of Jack-in-the-Pulpit sports an unusual leaf and even more unusual flower spathe with a long, fascinating spadix. In summer, a club-like formation of bright red seeds forms along the spathe, bringing a bright spark of color to moist woodland gardens. (Arisaema dracontium)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

24-36” tall x 12-18” wide. Who doesn’t want unusual plants in their garden that are easy to grow? Green Dragon is a gorgeous North American native that is guaranteed to elicit cries of “What is that?” from visitors to your shady spaces. Single leaves grow from a corm that is best planted in moist, rich soil. The compound leaf is arranged along a curved petiole, giving the plant a curious look that stands out from more common foliage types in the shade garden. The show gets even better when the spathe forms, highlighting a spadix which can stretch up to seven inches long. In the summer, red berries form along the spathe and the plant goes dormant. A terrific plant to pair with other, later plants such as hosta or ferns whose foliage will spread to cover an empty space. Like most arisaemas, Green Dragon is deer resistant and will slowly multiply by seed.
