Cobra lily, Jack-in-the-pulpit


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Elegant, graceful and beautiful form of the species with thin radially arranged leaflets and lovely narrow-waisted dark purple flowers accented by white stripes held fully visible below. The spathe limb or hood of the flower tapers to a long thread. This variety lacks hairs on the spathe tube rim or lip which would need magnification to see anyway. Increases by short runners terminating in a bulb and will form a colony in time. We saw this just above Kangding in China in 2006 including a fantastic black-leafed colony of a single clone which resides not in our garden but in our memories as a longing unfulfilled.
