Arisaema kiushianum has proven to be one of the easiest of the cobra lilies to grow. It also multiplies well, so you can divide the clump after a few seasons and share with your friends. The cutest member of the genus boasts a solitary leaf with 7-13 leaflets that sits atop a 15" tall green petiole (stalk). The stunning 8" tall flower emerges from the ground beside the petiole in late April (NC). The narrow tip of the flower pitcher (spathe) folds over on itself, and the inside of the pitcher is dark purple-and-white striped with a dramatic white T-mark engraved in the back. The long, whip-like tongue (spadix) extends 6" out from the pitcher in hopes of luring insects...for sexual purposes only!
