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

Arisaema candidissimum
Zoom In Photo:

This pink-flowered cobra lily is one of the most desirable for ornamental purposes because of the unique colour of the spathe in a genus that consists mainly of variations of green, burgundy and white. Here the light pink spathe is striped with white. A. candidissimum is later to emerge than other species and is often not seen until May when the flowers emerge as the beautiful and sub-tropical tripartite foliage is unfurling. A beautiful species worth collecting!
