The genus Arisaema is a member of the aroids family, a group of exotic flowering shade plants that includes philodendron and calla lilies. Arisaema species are also known as jack-in-the-pulpit or cobra lily, depending on the plant. Those species which have a pitcher-shaped flower sheath (spathe) with an upright spadix are called jack-in-the-pulpit. Those with a spathe like a cobra head are known as cobra lilies.
Arisaema species are woodland plants that range in height around 1' tall to 3-4'. Arisaema arise from a fall/winter dormant underground tuber or rhizome. Arisaema flowers emerge in spring on a stalk known as a pseudostem. Some species of jack-in-the-pulpit (A. sikokianum and A. urashima) have a silver pattern overlaying their normally green leaves. When you see the silver-leaved jack-in-the-pulpit for sale you need to act fast and order early because they always sell out fast.
