1 tuber £4.99
  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well drained, neutral to acidic
  • Flowering period: May - June
  • Flower colour: white streaked with purple
  • Hardiness: half hardy

    A tuberous perennial with an exotic-looking, hooded, white-striped-purple spathe up to 15cm long which appears in late spring or early summer. Perfect for a jungle themed border, the cobra lily can be grown in a pot so it can easily moved to a cool greenhouse when the temperatures start to drop.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous layer of mulch in autumn to protect from the worst of the winter - or if they are in pots, move them to a sheltered spot. Protect the emerging foliage from frosts in spring. Do not allow dormant tubers to dry out completely.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
