Hi Diane...the Avent collection of A. peninsulae blooms here (North
Carolina) in late March/early April.  And I agree that a flowering sequen=ce
list would be nice...I had a peek at the upcoming book written by Guy Gus=man
on Arisaema and it will include info not usually given (seedling leaf sha=pe
is one of the characters) so we're all anxiously awaiting its publication
(maybe Guy can fill us in on the date?).  Anyway, here's my observations =on
flowering times, for Arisaema, here in the Raleigh, North Carolina area:

EARLY (Feb.-Apr.): amurense, franchetianum, kiushianum, ringens, sikokian=um
MID (Apr.-June): concinnum, dracontium, fargesii, heterophyllum, kishidae=,
negeshii, serratum, taiwanense, thunbergii, triphyllum, urashima
LATE (June-Aug.): candidissimum, consanguineum, ciliatum, saxatile,
