[Arisaema-l] A ringens

I hear ya!

I brought my ringens home from Japan in 1987, and it survived in a pot for 
years waiting on me to finish college and settle down.  It was in and out of 
a pot several times.  Finally it was planted in its permanent home in 2001, 
and has flourished and set seeds on a couple of occasions.  Now I have it 
all over my garden, it's definitely the toughest Arisaema I've ever seen.

The mistake I made was assuming they were all as easy, care free and 
reliable as this one.  BIG MISTAKE!  Luckily, because I first saw and fell 
in love with them in Japan too, the kiushianum/thunbergii bunch 
(urashima-sou) have proved to be easy and reliable here on the Gulf Coast 
for me also.

My ringens and thunbergii have been up since January and finished blooming 
over a month ago, kiushianum is finishing now.
