Arisaema seeds and hardiness

I've just returned from a 4 week, 7,500km seed collecting trip to
Western Canada.

I not only had a chance to visit Rob & Sharon Illingworths wonderful
garden in Z4 Thunder Bay, Ontario- who grow many Arisaema (to
perfection, I might add), but saw gardens throughout the Canadian
prairies, most in Zones 2 & 3.

The three species that I saw most often thriving in these cold gardens
were A. sikokianum, amurense, triphyllum and dracontium.

A. sikokianum is readily available in nurseries in Alberta.

More later after I unpack my bags, and catch my breath.
