Behind the Arisaema flavum there is a special story. This plant, which is easy to grow in the garden, has a yellow (flavum) inflorescence, a colour that doesn't appear in other arisaemas. When in June the leaves unfold, the beautiful yellow inflorescence shows up just above the foliage. The inflorescence is only a few centimeters in size, but the striking colour is worth the effort. The flower makes seed quite easy, whilst the yellow spathe remains intact for quite long. This species was first described in 1775 and was discovered in several places. Arisaema flavum grows in the mountains of Ethiopia and Somalia, but also on the other side of the Red Sea (Gulf of Aden) in the mountains of southern Yemen. Further Eastward from Oman to Afghanistan to Western Nepal and the Himalayan region it also grows very well. This specie requires well-drained (forest or rockery) soil and should not stand too wet. Arisaema flavum tolerates more sun than other arisaemas.
