Superb! We are happy to offer one of the easiest-to-grow and most exciting of the cobra lilies. Emerging in very late spring (May or June) are 15" tall stalks of pink pitchers dramatically striped with translucent, white vertical veins (candidissimum means dazzling white). Beside the flower emerge two giant three-lobed leaves, which can reach 2' in width. Arisaema candidissimum offsets freely in a well-drained site in the garden. In the wild, it is found growing on sunny, rocky banks.

This pink-flowered cobra lily is one of the most desirable for ornamental purposes because of the unique colour of the spathe in a genus that consists mainly of variations of green, burgundy and white. Here the light pink spathe is striped with white. A. candidissimum is later to emerge than other species and is often not seen until May when the flowers emerge as the beautiful and sub-tropical tripartite foliage is unfurling. A beautiful species worth collecting!

(COBRA LILY) This is one of the easier of this genus to grow…an herbaceous perennial that emerges as late as May or even June. Erect 12-18” stems bordered on both sides by thrice-lobed wonga (18-24”) leaves and topped with summer pink pitchers with dramatic silver striping, later maturing to striking red seed pods. Does this sound like an alien? It looks like one! Very weird and cool…just give it a spot in rich garden soil and the same culture as hostas and epimedium (light shade, regular moisture) and amaze your friends! USDA Z5-7

Not so much like a cobra, the white "flowers" inspire more than their fair share of exclamations even though the floral display is a bit peek-a-boo among the leaves. The foliage is large and three-part, tolerant of more direct sun than other species but still requiring moist soil.

A cobra lily that does well in sun to light shade, this from China sends up flowers stalks in late spring/early summer topped with a pink pitcher flower, sweetly fragrant and beautifully striped with white veins. Two huge, three-lobed leaves, up to 2 ft across, follow to open beside the exotic flowers. A must have plant! Easy in sun to light or dappled shade where soil is well-drained, even rocky, and somewhat dry. Offsets quickly when happy. Frost hardy in USDA zone 5.

One of the most sought-after Jack-in-the-Pulpits with simple large leaves and the flowers of sweetly scented virginal white (which is in total contraposition with the suggestive floral appendages so espoused in the genus but lends further credence to the notion that good girls like bad boys).
