Green Dragon Arisaema dracontium

Description

I was excited to find several Green Dragons along the creek. This was essentially a new species for me, as although I have it checked off in my Newcombe's guide as having seen it in 1983 along the Thames River at Western University, I really have no memory of the sighting; it was just another new plant at the time. I have been hoping to see this species again, properly, whenever I am on a floodplain. Today I saw at least 30 plants but there are surely more there if a proper search was done. I found one clump of about 15 plants which made me wonder if they can spread by rhizomes to make clumps this large.

This species is certainly rare in the Hamilton area, known from five sites in Hamilton-Wentworth, all along the Welland River, and it is known from Brant although I don't know where it has been seen (List of the Vascular Plants in Ontario's Carolinian Zone - Oldham 2017).
