Pink flowered white striped Cobra Lily

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 thatís 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
Size: 15"–18" high x 10" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Arisaema candidissimum (P-1829)

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'
Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!
Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings
Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.
Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early August 2017 Newsletter Link
