Arisaema fargesii is a Chinese cobra lily, discovered by French plant explorer Pere Farges in the early 1900s, that has turned out to be one of the easiest to grow and most spectacular arisaema species in our collection. In late spring the giant, glossy green, trifoliate leaves (similar to Arisaema candidissimum) emerge from the nicely offsetting tubers. Alongside the leaves emerge the flower stalks, each topped with a large wine-red pitcher with dramatic white striping. The tip of the pitcher ends in a narrow, congested, alien-like red thread. From inside the inflorescence of Arisaema fargesii emerges the spadix, resembling a tiny red lizard peeking out of the pitcher...an absolutely stunning aroid!
