Yes, mine was Arisaema wilsonii. Happy to say its pollen has set a few
berries on reproductively isolated Arisaema triphyllum female
Hopefully the offspring will be hardier than the high-altitude cooler
growing and dry summer loving wilsonii/elephas/handelii Asian complex of
species. The wilsonii tuber soon shriveled but left me 6 small grape-sized
offsets around the crown of the old tuber. Griffithii quickly went dormant
after blooming also but I managed to save its tuber and placed its pollen
on the very hardy and easy growing amurense and ringens! A.sikokianum
pulled through a rough winter here in New Jersey by being planted in raised
beds or higher spots in the garden but I did lose thunbergii.
