Arisaema fargesii (Farges's Cobra Lily)

Arisaema fargesii (Farges's Cobra Lily)
Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 5-8 18" tall Origin: China

This Chinese cobra lily, discovered by French plant explorer Pere Farges in the early 1900s, has turned out to be one of the easiest to grow and most spectacular species in our collection. In late spring, the giant trifoliate leaves (similar to A. candidissimum) emerge topped in the center with a large wine-red pitcher with dramatic white striping. The tip of the pitcher ends in a narrow, congested, alien-like mass of red thread. From inside the flower emerges the spadix, resembling a tiny red lizard peeking out of the pitcher...absolutely stunning! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
