Arisaema sikokianum seed - seed source announcement
Wed, 03 Jan 2007 19:43:33 PST
Hello everyone,

My friend, Marsha Russell of Littleton, Massachusetts, had a bumper crop of 
seed of Arisaema sikokianum this year (approximately 6000 seeds).  She's 
offering up her fresh autumn 2006 seed harvest for sale for US domestic orders, with 
deep quantity discounts.  Check this link for details:

I think it was 4 years ago that I gave Marsha a dozen and a half seedlings of 
the fabulous Japanese "Jack-in-the-pulpit"; Arisaema sikokianum. While my own 
self-sown seedlings have been slow to mature (my garden is rather hot and 
sunny), in just 3 years in her garden/nursery, the seedlings exploded into 
magnificent flowering specimens with abundant seed set (her garden conditions are 
more shaded and moist than mine).

Based on how rare it is to see seed of this species offered commercially, 
this is a good opportunity to get some fresh seed at a reasonable rate. This 
species is somewhat variable, so be sure to check out the photographs posted on 
the webpage link I provided above.
