BULB LOG 25, 20th June 2012
« on: June 20, 2012, 05:10:22 PM »
I appreciate the bulb logs for their chronicle of a garden's changing aspects and for Ian showing us not only the most beautiful specimens but random seedlings and whole garden views.  I am already dreading the time when there will be no Wednesday read!

I have a question about the arisaema featured as an "arisaema forest" in this week's log.  I have very similar arisaemas that I raised from seed.  They came in an unsprouted seed pot from a dear friend who passed away and were labeled "Arisaema sp. ex China".  Anyone have a name for them?  The burgundy stripes are stunning as are the thread-like tips of the leaves.

The arisaema forest is A. ciliatum, Claire, though there may be a couple of A. intermedium in the foreground of some pix.


Ian says thanks for your kind words.... he'd say so himself but he's eating!

Thanks for the name, Maggi.  Now when I give away my extras I'll have a name for them.

Not sure this is relevant with you Claire, but it really was with me so I thought I'd highlight it. I was getting very confused with A ciliatum because of the description and the species name. This post from 2011 helped me figure it.  :)

Thanks for the link, Ron.  (Your reply is a perfect example of why I keep coming back to the SRGC forum -- because I learn so much.)

A close examination of my plants reveals that they are the "naked" form.  Too bad, I would have enjoyed seeing the hairs  ;)

On the subject of lifting trilliums: would this be a good time to repot 3 year old trillium seedlings ?

I have a pot full of trillium grandiflorum seedlings and they must be feeling very crowded by now  :)
