Arisaema galeatum is often a tall plant reaching more than four feet in height. Its species name comes from the word galea meaning helmet which refers to the helmet-like spathe which completely encloses and hides the spadix. The unique spathe is red grading towards green in the upper half. The leaflet is coarsely textured due to the numerous veins which are purplish underneath. Rich, evenly moist soil is best. Himalayan.
All of our arisaema are extra large, often huge, blooming size bulbs. Though remember that mature bulb size varies greatly between species. Occasionally, some bulbs might not bloom in their first year until they become established.
