Arisaema thunbergii ssp. thunderbergii/ Nangokuurashimasou ナンゴクウラシマソウ

Arisaema thunbergii ssp. thunderbergii, a perennial 30-40cm in height, inhabits damp, somewhat shady places in coastal to hilly districts with single leaves. The leaves divide themselves pedately into 8-25cm-in-length 13-15 leaflets with pointed tips. Midribs in the leaflets look white, overlapping with extended white strips. Spathes measure 5-8cm long, adoral parts, dark purple, project out, and limb edges gradually narrower and longer toward the tips. Appendages in the spathes are incredibly long; they taper to go far over the leaflets and bend down to the ground. Bloom time: April-May.
