Arisaema amurense is an easy-to-grow, small cobra lily that forms a fast-multiplying clump in the woodland garden. In spring, one 5-leaflet leaf emerges on a short stem. The flowering stalk (peduncle) rises another couple of inches past where the leaf is joined and ends in a 3" tall green and white striped pitcher. The hood (spathe) is draped over the short stubby sexual parts (spadix) like a wind-blown flag. In our garden, Arisaema amurense is consistently one of the earliest emerging species that we grow...usually mid-March in NC.
