This easy-to-grow cobra lily is spectacular enough to grow just for the foliage. The 3'+ high purple patterned petiole (stalk) gives rise to two dark green leaves (the lower one is much larger), each with 7-13 long leaflets. Each leaflet is highlighted with a dramatic silver streak down its center. Just above the foliage, on a thin stalk, is a narrow pitcher, streaked purple and white with an elongated tip that drapes over the club-like spadix and down its front...very spectacular! Our flowering-size plants are tissue-cultured from a particularly nice specimen.
