Perennial of the Week: Arisaema ringens, cobra-lily
Arisaema ringens is a spectacular, Japan-native perennial commonly known as cobra-lily. Emerging from the spring soil as a seemingly sinister spear, this beauty opens to reveal two trifoliate leaves and a single cobra-like flower. Despite having a hooded, green and purple spathe, flies (the primary pollinator) still manage to find the inner yellowish white spadix. A. ringens goes dormant in the summer after flowering.
