This is one of the two native American arisaemas, the other being A.dracontium.
The three leaflets on each leaf explain why this arisaema
is called "triphyllum."
Strangely (and contrary to the name), there are varieties of A. triphyllum eith five-leaflets in each leaf.

|Growth habit of the above. Arisaemas don't do well in San Jose for me, and this one has expired.|
