This selection of cobra lily was collected as seed along a stream bank in the 99 Dragons Mountains of Yunnan, China at 9,000' elevation. The plants emerge in mid to late June with an umbrella-like leaf that opens just as the large pitcher-like flower is doing the same. The green and white striped pitcher boasts an attractive arching hood that ends with a dramatic thread-like tip. The width of the leaves and color in the flowers will vary with each seedling.
