Arisaema candidissimum x fargessi Hybrid

New!
COBRA LILY Hybrid

A few years ago we crossed a A. candidissimum and an A. fargessi. We've been waiting for them to get big enough to bloom to see what they look like, but we can't wait any longer. The leaves and the corms look like they may resemble one parent or the other. Time will tell if the flowers will be a blend of the two parents or more like just one of them. Want in on our little experiment? This is a good oportunity to get some small Ariseam bulbs for a good price.

Zones 5-8. 2-3 ft. Moist, well-drained soil. Needs good drainage. Shade to part shade.

We are offering 2 sizes (See Photo):

  • The X-small plants are 3-4 years away from blooming.
  • The Small plants are 2-3 years away from blooming.

Native to the Himalayas.

Zones 5-8. 12-20 in. Sun to shade, most any soil will do, but not soggy soil.

Blooming-sized bulbs.
