Arisaema

Cobra Lily or Jack-in-the-Pulpit

These exotic-looking Calla relations comprise a vast genus primarily found in the Himalayas, China and Japan. While the sparsely produced leaves are carved into 3 or more leaflets, the curious inflorescence features a fleshy club-like spike that’s packed with tiny flowers and encompassed by an over arching flower bract. Fertile, humus-rich and evenly moist soil helps keep the Cobra Lilies charmed.

Lustrous arrow-shaped leaves, which often grow 2 ft. wide, wait ‘til early summer to burst forth with dramatic tropical appeal. Affixed to sturdy 15 in. stalks, sensational hooded flowers, resembling pink pitchers, are enhanced by striking stripes of translucent milky white vertical veins. Undemanding, deer resistant and more sun-tolerant than other Arisaema, this lusted-after Cobra Lily pledges a glorious colony, produces offsets freely and launches bold bright orange-red seed pods in late summer.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 15"–18" high x 10" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Jewel of the woodland garden, this elegant, easy-to-grow species is found throughout southwestern China. A whorl of numerous narrow leaflets with slender drip-tips and undulating edges crowns each tall stately stem. Conjuring mysterious images of a cobra poised to strike, the otherworldly inflorescence is borne from a petiole beneath the foliage. It is defined by a purplish brown and greenish white-streaked spathe with an elongated hood that tapers to a pendulous, very long, threadlike tip. Clustered, bright scarlet berries create a colorful grand finale. Fertile, humus-rich and evenly moist soil will keep the Cobra Lily charmed.

This plant will be shipped from fall through mid-spring. Most of the plants will be shipped dormant and bare-root unless we have potted ones which have sprouted.

Dormant Arisaemas in containers must not be kept wet. Water them in their pots only when the soil gets bone dry—about twice a month.

Blooms June.

Size: 3'–4' high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
