This hybrid between the Japanese Arisaema sikokianum
and the eastern North American A. triphyllum is certainly
an interesting cross, appearing intermediate between the
two species in some respects but surprisingly less so in
other features.  Similar to A. sikokianum, it has open
spathes that allow viewing inside the flower. I'm surprised
by the green and white color of the flowers, although in
some forms of A. triphyllum pale spathes are common.
