Arisaema ternatipartitum (note correct spelling) is a very rare Japanese
species from the Japanese islands of Shikoku, Honshu and Kyushu.

It has two leaves with 3 leaflets each.  The inflorescence blooms at the
leaves unfold. The spathe has interesting "ears" at the base of the
spathe hood.  The spadix is club-shaped.  It is unusual in that the corm
sends out rhizomes and forms new corms at the tips, forming open
colonies.  It is easily grown in rich, humusy soil in shade, hardy to at
least USDA Zone 6, probably much colder.
