Dear Folks,

Yesterday I came across a seemingly natural population of an Arisaema sp. in
Hobe Sound, just N. of Jupiter on the E. Coast of Florida.    This is way
South of where I had read they occur, which was I believe somewhere around
Gainesville, N. Florida.    It is in a tidal bog just W. of the
intercoastal, around Condos. 'A' and 'B' of a development called 'Loblolly
Bay', built on stilts over this black, wet smelly soil, sand fly infested
swamp!!!   A LOT were in bloom, the plants varied in size from 12" or so up
to 3 - 4 feet!   I know that there are two species recorded from Florida, A.
dracontium and A. triphyllium ( ? ), any know how I can tell the
LOTS of Peltandra virginica in this area also!!

I also noticed that Philo. 'Xanadu' is beginning to come into bloom, single
inflorescences emerging from the leaf sheaths of the younger leaves on
mature plants everywhere!

Good growing,

Julius Boos
