Arisaema sazenzoo Patterned Selection
Common Name: Cobra Lily Family: Araceae (The Arum Family)

We are excited to offer this rarely available species in it's even rarer variegated form! Deep, velvety burgundy spathes with a long spathe limb that dangles like an elephant's trunk. Though the species name comes from "zazen" which refers to Japanese Buddhist meditation as the flower recalls a bowed monk meditating. Elephant or monk, take your pick, this is a great cobra lily! Foliage is centred with silver markings. Mid-spring.
