Re: [Aroid-l] Eminium lehmanii

Dear Julius,

Thanks so much! I've found out that they can take extreme cold during the winter (far colder than my zone 5b/6a), but as you say, they grow in the spring rainy season and then go dormant during the hot, dry summers and so need to be kept completely dry for their summer dormancy. I was told that they are not like Arum which grow throughout the mild winters of their homeland, but rather have a short growing season in the spring and early summer. I was thinking of importing a wonderful Trillium kurabayashii and some species Colchium and Fritillaria anyway so adding this one tuber will probably only increase my cost by perhaps $35 (pricey for me, but not by aroid standards). If you can remember the name of the grower in Holland who grows these please pass his e-mail along to me. I could not receive the tuber until next fall so I have plenty of time to try and do my homework with the help of the aroid-o-philes here!!

Dear Dan,

There is a member in Holland who grows these, ask him (wish I could remember his e-mail!!). These plants grow and bloom in the 'mild' winter months of their native land, and go dormant in the VERY hot and dry summer, so may NOT do well for you unless you do all kinds of 'magic' in your winters or in a super-controlled inviroment. You may want to hold your $$ until you manage to obtain more info on these 'tricky' genera. For an impressive Eminium-like plant with a purple spathe and a horrible smell, which you are looking for, try Dracunculus, it grows WELL in the USA, sometimes becomming a weed.
The best, and good growing!!

Hello fellow aroiders,
&gt;I was hoping someone could tell me about Eminium lehmanii. It has a beautiful maroon-black spathe and so I'm sort of smitten with it!! I was thinking of getting a couple of these for my collection, but they are a bit pricey and so I'd like all the information I can get before committing to a purchase. All I know is the ones being offered originally came from Uzbekistan. Are these summer growers?? How much cold can they take?? I live in zone 6a in Western Pennsylvania and would like to grow them in pots for the summer and then store them in the house for the winter like an Amorph. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
