Raised from Jim Archibald seed (JJA 1.180.550). The seed was originally collected by John Andrews in openings amongst Pines at 1840m in the Cuddy Valley, Kern Co, California.

Philip MacD was here last week and I wanted to give him a plant he grew from seed - Arisaema yamatense var. sugimotoi.  I initially thought he had grown it from NARGS seed. When I checked my old inventory I found my deceased plant listed as via PMcD ex Archibald 1994, we had jointly ordered that year from the 1995 catalogue.

From the catalogue under Section III seeds from cultivated plants and other areas: "yamatense var. sugimoto D. Elick coll. Japan, Honshu Shizuoka Pref., Ogasa. nr. sea level. 13.11.94 (Local) with long-acuminate, green spathes, yellowish inside. Pedate leaves, sometimes silvered. (8 seeds) E = 4.50 "  So not JJA seed but Elick's and still a very robust & dependable plant.  It clumps vigorously and in a good year is  approx. 5 feet tall.  Four pix follow.  I was able to get a few corms last month from a garden where a friend once lived and despite neglect it is alive and doing very well.

Turns out I had already give Philip a corm.  Perhaps this should be under Arisaema rather than Archibald???  johnw
