4 to 6 inches should be OK.  I note you are in Zone 7, so 4 inches should be 
sufficient.  Here  in Zone 5b, I often plant as deep as 6 inches.

"Too much shade" --- especially in Zone 7, if you want to enjoy these 
beautiful leaves (after blooming) all summer, how could there be such a ting 
as too much shade.  My Arisaema are all planted on the edges (more or less) 
of a beech and balsam forest.  They get about 4 hours of dappled sun (i.e., 
very little), and do very well.

If you a really interested in Arisaema, you'll find lots more info on 
ARISAEMA-L, which focuses more on hardy aroids.
