This sun loving cobra lily is the smallest member of the genus. In early summer (mid June in NC), two (5-11 leaflet) leaves emerge from the underground tuber. At the same time, the stem holding the leaves supports a tiny 1" tall yellow pitcher, just above the foliage. After flowering, the old flower fades to a stalk of bright red berries. Since this cobra lily inflorescence has both sexes, setting seed is a regular occurrence. I guess this bisexual bit will keep members of the religious right from purchasing one... oh well. A. flavum has high cute potential!
