BIG LEAF GIANT Cobra Lily, Jack In The Pulpit, Arisaema speciosum
A beautiful woodland plant with attractive and intriguing unusually-dark flowers. A hooded spathe flops over a waxy spadix. A unique and rare Arisaema with large leaves. These plants are very long lived, and form dense clumps. Bulbs can be lifted and divided to populate other areas. These plants are very easy to grow, and amaze us with their versatility, growing in various soils (including sandy) and can tolerate a great amount of drought once established. Sun requirements are also versatile, as we have ours in a half-sun location, even though they are traditionally woodland/ plants. Very hardy (even though they look exotic)!
