Arisaema ringens / Musashiabumi ムサシアブミ

 
Arisaema ringens is a perennial inhabiting damp forest floors in coastal areas or shady spots along valleys, with two leaves with three leaflets; the terminal ones measure10-30cm in length in flowering time. Flower stalks, 3-10cm in length, emerge among petioles and set spadices (inflorescence) on them. Spathes that enclose flowers, ranging from dark purple to green, with white stripes, are peculiar; adoral parts jut out like ears, swallowed up in a bag way, and tips projecting. Bloom time: March-May.
