A Large Green Dragon

No, not Puff! Arisaema dracontium. I have several of these plants in my woods, but this is the most handsome one. The yardstick is for scale.

Very impressive, and thanks for sharing. I hope you will plant those seeds and have many happy green dragonettes. Seriously, they usually are not difficult to grow given enough time. The last time I had some nice seeds that the critters allowed to mature, I, with wineglass in hand, stolled around the property and poked seeds in the ground. Cleaning them hastens the growth, but the simple way works, too, if you are patient.

Thanks, ncrescue and Carol.

ncr, I like your planting method, but being a
redneck, I'll probably have a beer in my hand. :-)
