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.
