  Arisaema fimbriatum hardiness
From: Adam Black <epiphyte1 at earthlink.net> on 1969.12.31 at 16:00:00(19438)
Combining the current topics of A. fimbriatum and Tony's experience with cold hardiness in another Thai Arisaema sp, I had A. fimbriatum survive outside this winter here in north Florida zone 8b where we had a few nights down to 17 degrees F. I actually didn't mean to experiment with it, but accidentally forgot about it. This was in a small pot not much bigger than the tuber, so there wasn't much insulation around it either. It just got done flowering for the first time as well - very neat.

I'm going to plant it outside in a shady well-drained rock garden and hope it continues to survive the winters here.

I also experimented with Arisaema fimbriatum's hardiness, but on
purpose...so far, nothing good to report.
