Arisaema (Jack In The Pulpit, Cobra Lily)
Juniper Level Botanic Garden - An Ex-Situ Conservation Garden
Our Mission is to Collect, Study, Propagate, and Share
As of 2018, JLBG has just over 25,000 taxa of living plants, making the collection one of the most diverse in the world. Fundraising for an operational endowment to preserve the garden is underway, administered by NC State University. If you'd like to help preserve the gardens and plant collections for future generations, you can do so with a tax-deductible contribution at JLBG.org and click on the Donate Link.
At Juniper Level Botanic Garden, part of our mission is to educate and share both plants and information. This photo/informational gallery is devoted to cataloging as many forms as possible. It is our hope that this photographic study gallery can also prevent duplicate use of names and prevent confusion in the trade.
Arisaemas are a genus of aroids, related to other genera like philodendron and spathiphyllum. Arisaema go by the common names of Jack-in-the-pulpit, and cobra lily. While the leaves of many arisaema species are interesting, it is the spathe and spadix inflorescence (what is commonly referred to as the flower) that is most fascinating. As part of our educational efforts, we present this arisaema photo gallery for your enjoyment. At any one time, we try to offer a large collection of arisaema for sale, but since production time is usually 3 years from seed, all arisaema may not be available at all times. Also, some of the special arisaema selections shown here are so unique that they can only be reproduced by division, which is much slower. We hope you will enjoy our jack-in-the-pulpit/cobra lily photo gallery.
