Hello Jim,
A few miles south of you and A. tryphyllum seedlings in the garden ar=e popping
up in the warmer spots. The mature ones are just beginning to get their n=oses up
above the leaf litter.
A. ringens is behaving a bit odd this spring... just now has one nose=out of
three stands up above the leaves. Usually it is one of the first and has =to be
covered and protected a couple of times each spring. Believe my A. sikoki=anum  has
finally given up the ghost. It has always come up far too early for here =and gets
killed back most years in spite of my trying to protect it.
A. takadae is still in sheath, but about 4 to 5 inches in height. A. =yamatense
var sugimotoi has been killed back once and now has a short bloom  and ne=w foliage
up. A. monophyllum is about 5 inches tall as is about four more I can not=find the
tags for now.
I have quite a bit of seedlings and mature plants in pots on the prot=ected
side of the garage and most have their noses just breaking the surface. J=ust as
well, as we are forecast to have freezing temps Tuesday and Wednesday nig=hts.
Looks as though I will have to drag out the boxes for covering my Arisaem=a or
there will be no seeds again this year.
