Arisaema consanguineum 'Siren's Song'

Rated: 

(Himalayan Cobra Lily) Siren's Song is tall, but a bit shorter than the Poseidon cultivar of this woodland species. Its blue-green, radial leaves, are wide and wavy. They spread out like spokes at the top of the plant's stalk and have wide silver stripes down the center of each blade.

Please note:  The flower of this variety is identical to the Poseidon clone.  The difference is the prominent silver varigation on the top surface of the leaf.

(Himalayan Cobra Lily) Siren's Song is tall, but a bit shorter than the Poseidon cultivar of this woodland species. We offer you well-established clumps that will reward you by blooming the first year that you plant them.

The spathe of Siren's Song is a leaf-like blossom that wraps around and hangs over the plant's finger-like spadix with its tip coming to a long, thin point. It looks a bit like a cobra hissing. Its blue-green, radial leaves, are wide and wavy. They spread out like spokes at the top of the plant's stalk and have wide silver stripes down the center of each blade. Give this plant full sun to partial shade and rich, well-drained soil.

Most Arisaemas are from Asia where they are known as Cobra Lilies. Arisaema consanguineum is native to lowlands as well as alpine areas in China, India, Taiwan, Thailand and Tibet. North American species are commonly called Jack in the Pulpit.

Plantswoman Ellen Hornig, who is particularly renowned for the Arisaemas she grew at the former Seneca Hill Perennials nursery in Ithaca, New York, bred this excellent cultivar. It grows well in full sun to partial shade and survives chilly winters.

Arisaemas are used medically in herbal formulas, but should be carefully processed for safe consumption.
