Arisaema candidissimum

Arisaema candidissimum is a superb architectural perennial garden plant which grows from a corm and is one of the finest and most vigorous Arisaemas. It has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Award of Garden Merit.  

The flowers or inflorescences are very striking with white hooded spathes striped pale pink. As the flowers mature the foliage grows into impressive large glossy like leaves (like those of the cheese plant).  The plants in full leaf, reach between 30 and 50 cm and the flowers vary from 10 to 15 cm.  

We  propagate and grow Arisaema candidissimum on the Twelve Nunns Nursery, a specialist nursery based in South Lincolnshire. We offer two sizes of corm for purchase, 4-5 cm which are at least three years old, and 5-6 cm which are at least 4 years old. We offer both sizes of healthy corms for despatch in the dormant season which is from November to April. Given the right situation and soil they should flower the season after planting.
