Arisaema consanguineum ‘The Perfect Wave’
Common Name: Himalayan Cobra Lily Family: Araceae (The Arum Family)

A stunning cultivar bred by Ellen Hornig with breathtaking silver variegation on silver-blue, seductively undulating leaves. Considering that the normal form of Arisaema consanguineum is mid green foliage this selection is pretty amazing. ‘The Perfect Wave’ will also grow to four to five feet with its dramatic umbrella of leaflets. Green flowers give way to green then red clusters of fruits.
