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 and three leaflets; the terminal ones are 10-30 cm long during flowering. Flower stalks, 3-10cm tall, 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.
