Arisaema consanguineum

Himalayan Cobra Lily

Categories: Wildflower

In June the 30" tall stalks arise, topped with an unfurling radial leaf with 12 leaflets. The leaves of Arisaema consanguineum often have dramatic drip-tips...a nice added bonus. Alongside the leaf stalk is a large pitcher-like spathe (usually green or purple-and-white striped) with a large hood that ends in a long dangling thread.
