This cobra lily is distributed from the Himalayas to Yunnan in southwestern China at high altitude. Its inflorescence is clothed in a greenish to purple spathe and produces a long, whip-like tip.
The single, large, glossy leaf is palmate and deeply lobed to the base into 3 broad segments. The foliage is deciduous in winter and the plant hibernates as a bulbous rhizome and can survive even severe freezes with a little mulch.
It is considered hardy down to at least USDA Zone 6 and must have moist but very well drained soil and a spot in filtered sun to look its best.
Germination: Sow 1cm in coir or sowing mix + perlite. Keep bright and constantly moist but not wet. Germination takes 2-6 weeks.
