Arisaema flavum is a unique cobra lily with bright yellow spathes.
Arisaema flavum is a unique cobra lily with bright yellow spathes. It grows to about one foot tall usually with two dissected leaves. Also unusual about this species is its distribution: while almost all species occur in Asia (with two species in eastern North America), A. flavum is found in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa -- quite the fascinating little traveler. Grows in drier habitats than your usual Arisaema so try it in dry shade!
