What's New?

  • 1/20/00: Just added A. pierreanum from Wilbert Hetterscheid (who else?).
  • 1/1/00: The Arisaema Page is officially Y2K compliant.
  • 10/10/99: Just added more pictures of A. scortechinii that were taken by Guy Gusman in the wild in Malaysia. They look quite different from Eric Walton's picture from the Sydney Botanic Garden. Same species?
  • 10/7/99: Just added A. ehimense, negishii, and yamatense courtesy of Barry Yinger and Andy Wong of Asiatica.
  • 10/6/99: Just added A. prazeri, neglectum, and an unidentified species with blue pollen. All are more or less tropical, and are being grown by Wilbert Hetterscheid. They are in the Gallery, but not on Wilbert's page yet. Name changes: A. translucens is now A. sahyadricum; A. wrayii is now A. umbrinum.
