Arisaema candidissimum (Chinese Cobra Lily)

White-Spathed Jack In The Pulpit, Chinese Jack In The Pulpit, Chinese Cobra Lily, Pink Cobra Lily


This charming tuberous perennial bursts from the ground in late spring - early summer with highly elegant, white, luminous hooded spathes, striped pale pink. Besides the exotic beauty of its blooms, Arisaema candidissimum (Chinese Cobra Lily) also enjoys a sweet perfume, which lasts for a short while after the spathe unfolds. The foliage of huge, three-lobed leaves (up to 2 ft. across or 60 cm) usually appears after the flowers, and remains attractive during the growing season. Cobra Lilies set seed with bright orange-red seed pods in late summer to early fall and may eventually form large colonies if happy. They are found growing on sunny, rocky banks in the wild.
