    Looks like you picked that ariseamea before it could bloom.

    Really not a good idea, they come up from a bulb, and what you picked is about all the vegetation they produce.

    I haven’t had any luck getting that one to increase… All I know to do is leave a plant cage around it to protect it during dormancy.

    No worries it has a lot more leaves than this, it grows like mad. Thanks so much for the i.d.

    Thanks so much. We have a lot of foliage on this plant. Trying to decide whether to keep it, move it or treat it like a weed.

    Pretty expensive plant to treat like a weed….

    Apparently it’s happy where it is… I’d protect it…
    or offer it at the next plant swap or on craigs list or something…

    You can grow turf somewhere else… ariseamea is fairly particular about it’s growing conditions.

    Lotta people try to grow ariseamea without much success…
