A cute little cobra lily very similar overall to A. thunbergii, but hardier, somewhat coarser in appearance, and often with broader leaflets. The spathes are burgundy and greyish-brown with speckles and a spadix appendage that often licks out of the spathe to taste the air around it. An easy and vigorous, good garden plant.
