Light frost last night. Alocasia 'Yautia', Brugmannsia, and Colocasia
leaves hit hard. Kaichen A103 '00 a bit limp, A102 '99 and vatious konjacs
already dormant, but A101 '99 relatively unaffected. Arum purpureospathum,
concinnatum, and (italicum x maculatum), all sheltered to some degree, and
of course italicum out in the open, all in leaf for a while now, not
affected. Arum creticum putting up a shoot against the brick wall of the
east-facing foundation between Asarum nipponicum and an Arum concinnatum,
all under a Musa basjoo. Arum cyrenaceum putting up a shoot in the back of
the coldframe. Where is my Arum nigrum? Can't find its tag either at the
west facing wall. There Dracunculus canariensis looks fine (must be potted
up soon and brought indoors) under a Brugmannsia that survived only slight
damage. Nearby against this wall are spring-formed offsets of Arisaema
consanguineum 'Silver Center' that resprouted in September, still in leaf.
One had bloomed and its pollen was put on an Arisaema triphyllum that was
de-refridgerated in July and planted further back, in the open. It is
struggling to hold on its leaves but hopefully the infructescence forming
will have time to mature.
