Arisaema ringens – Cobra Lily

Arisaema ringens

Arisaema (a-ri-SAY-ma) is another plant genus that I am very fascinated with.  One look at the photos of the of the strange and beautiful flowers and I was hooked.  If you have not yet made their acquaintance, please drop in the nursery and see them for yourselves.

Arisaema ringens (Cobra Lily) is one of the first to flower in the spring and is bloom now at the nursery.  From a dormant tuber these plants send up these helmet-like flowers with two large green trifoliate leaves.

Arisaema sikokianum

Arisaema sikokianum

Arisaema sikokianum (with patterned leaves) is also blooming in the nursery now.  This is another example of the curious and beautiful flowers in this genus – and this has a variegated leaf as well. 
Arisaema are easy to grow if you met their needs – a shady spot in the garden with  very well drained soil.  Female flowers can produce striking orange-red fruit.
Additional Arisaemas available at the nursery include Arisaema flavum, A. taiwanense ‘Sliver Heron’, A. candidissimum, A. ciliatum and A. franchetianum ‘Hugo’.
