You know you’re tired when you concoct a garden showdown between your two favourite Arisaema species! I am so enamored of both Arisaema thunbergii var. urashima and the beguiling pink beauty that is Arisaema candidissimum, [the shriveled pink handkerchief in the lower right corner of this photo!] and couldn’t help adding the tongue in cheek comment as the header of this post. I am amazed at the size of ‘Urashima’ – an introduction to the garden via my enablers at Fraser’s Thimble Farms last spring. I can hardly wait for it to spread its serpentine beauty throughout the Rare and Unusual border. As for ‘Candidissimum’ – deep down she knows she reigns supreme in my heart of hearts!
