Drought Tolerant Perennials

Arisaema consanguineum

Giant Himalayan Cobra Lily
Giant Himalayan Cobra Lily is a welcome addition to the shade garden. It sends forth tall (3-6') stalks topped with umbrellas of dissected foliage. The unusual purple and green striped spathe appears in early-mid summer, and is followed by tight clusters of orange red fruit. Good drainage is essential for overwintering, although it appreciates fertile moist soil while in active growth. Potted 2-2.5" bulbs.
