Arisaema consanguineum

Arisaema consanguineum

Arisamea consanguineum cobra lily has a mottled leafstalk topped by 11-20 narrow pointed leaves with long, threadlike tips above a green, pale striped spathe to 6" that has a downward curving hood with a tail as long as 6".

Grow in part to full shade in well-drained fertile, evenly moist soil. Arisaemas are tuberous perennials that die back to the ground in winter. Arisaema consanguineum can emerge over a long period from late winter to late summer. This might be a reflection of adaptations to its widespread geographic distribution with differing habitats and climates. It is native to forests and shrublands from Uttar Pradesh, India to SW China in the Himalayas at 5,900-9,800 ft. Hardy to 0 degrees F. Araceae
