Arisaema flavum 
The only yellow arisaema I've run across (until the A. balansae relative), and one of the smallest inflorescences to boot.. This is a very adaptable, vigorous, and variable plant. It is reported hardy into the colder regions of Vermont, and is certainly happy in Massachusetts. Most of the plants in cultivation are forms of A. flavum ssp. abbreviatum, or so the experts say. There is also a form called ssp. tibeticum, which has it's own page (look here). However, we have grown variants that may not fit either category. These, too, have been segregated to separate pages.

Up close and personal. Ignore the dirty fingers.
A. flavum seedhead. Notice the ants-- they love arisaema seeds, and carry them off to who knows where.
Reguar little flavums, in bloom. The catalogs may tell you that the normal form is only six inches tall, but they get taller as they get older-- up to 18", maybe more. Notice the top right picure-- this seems to confirm it.
Regular flavums in the rear, with the giant form in front, just coming up.
The regular little flavums are in front, but check out the monster in the back that is just leafing out and blooming. WAY bigger, and notice that it has no less than FOUR leaves.
