Arisaema flavum
Common Name: Yellow Cobra Lily Family: Araceae (The Arum Family)

Arisaema flavum
Zoom In Photo:

This unique cobra lily has bright yellow spathes. It grows to about one foot tall usually with two dissected leaves. Also unusual about this species is its distribution: while almost all species occur in Asia (with two species in eastern North America), A. flavum is found in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa -- quite the fascinating little traveller. Grows in drier habitats than your usual arisaemas so try it in dry shade!

Open forests on dry, stony grounds and meadows, 1800 to 4500 m.
