Three winters ago I moved from the Greater Toronto area taking a
number of Arisaema species with me to plant in the 'new' garden. All had
been grown from seed, and all were adolescent tubers.  I have had
surprisingly good survival rates in a much colder climate than Toronto
and offer the following info as encouragement.
The species that have survived and flowered that were grown from
seed are amurense, candidissimum, ciliatum, consanguineum, dracontium,
flavum, franchetianum, heterophyllum, jacquemonti, limbatum, propinquum,
ringens, sikokianum, sikokianum x takedae, and of course various
triphyllum, plus yamatense.
The species that have survived, purchased since the move as
mature tubers, are candidissimum ( Ellen Hornig ), fargesii ( Ellen
Hornig ), intermedium biflagellatum ( Autumn Glade ), and speciosum (
Jacques Amand ).
All the above species have survived at least the last two
winters, and most the last three outdoors. I mulch with 10''-12'' of
leaves ,and start small tubers in sunken beds that I gradually fill over
the years to put the maturing tubers and an ever increasing depth. If
you would like details on this sunken bed method that works well for
me,  please e mail me privately for the details.
