Trying to figure this out, I've never used a listserver system  before!!  
Hope it works this time.
Hello all, 
Ray’s note of welcome asked for a brief introduction, so here it is;=hope  it’
s not too verbose. 
I’m 63 years old, married for 42 years, have one grown son.  Althoug=h a PhD 
organic chemist, I have  worked for many years in machine design and ceramicarmor development.  I’ve been an avid, though informal,  gardener fo=r my entire 
life.  My  wife and I live on 6+ wooded hillside acres in SE  Pennsylvania a=nd 
garden (more or less, mostly less) on about 2 acres  of it 
I began hunting for deer resistant plants after their depredations  destroye=d 
most of my hemerocallis, hosta, and lilium and many of my other  plantings. In addition to a fair  collection of epimediums, I have begun growing 
hellebores and other species  which are hopefully less tasty to them.   A. t=riphyllum 
is native here and I  have thousands  in all sizes and  colors growing in mywoods and gardens, but I did not become greatly interested  in aroids until =I 
encountered Arum Italicum growing in a winter garden and my  wife loved it. =I 
planted it  everywhere, and added more arums as I found them with a couple o=f 
pinellia  thrown in also.  Further research  turned up the potential of the 
marvelous foliage of the hardy Amorphophallus and  Dracunculus, so I have adÞd 
them to my garden last year.   This led to the  Arisaemas. 
I am particularly fascinated with the sinarisaema group  plants because of 
their foliage.  I  purchased some consanguineum tubers last summer, planted 
them, and started  looking for more kinds, apparently I’m now addictí.  While 
purchasing arisaema seeds and  tubers on eBay, I began correspondence with 
Giorgio Pozzi, a member here, and I  would like to particularly thank him fo=r his 
assistance, generosity, and  encouragement.
