    Nice! Love these guys.

    (There are a few in there, but the two biggest plants in the photo are the highlights—with all the green it’d be easy to miss them.)

    Arisaema triphyllum is highly variable. I have yet to find a citation for the range of plant sizes, but there are many described varieties. I've seen a few in VT that were close to 1 meter tall! This plant is interesting because I see both the large specimens and some much smaller ones in the photograph. So, ecological variation such as hydrology or sunlight don't seem to be playing a huge role in the determination of the plant size, otherwise all the plants in the photograph would be roughly the same size. Maybe it's genetic.

    Actually, both! I'd say it is mainly beech, though. A lot of white oak, though.

    I want to see more photos of Zach's nature adventures!! More photos of you operating the camera with your little remote. Sort of like the global adventures of the Expedia garden gnome.
