This Himalayan cobra lily is one of the most statuesque of the genus. The green stems emerge in late May or early June in NC and rise to 2-3'. Atop each stem sits one leaf, divided into 7-13 long leaflets. The flower emerges at nearly the same time with a dark purple-and-white striped pitcher and an extended, threadlike tip. Inside the pitcher, you will find the "preacher" tucked in neatly out of the weather. This is a stoloniferous species that should make a nice clump after a few seasons.
