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)
