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)

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!
Celebrated headliners of the late show!
Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
