Cobra Lily - Darlingtonia californica
- Product Code: Cob-9cm
Sent potted. Found in the Oregon and Northern California, often in mountainous areas, the Cobra Lily is one of the most spectacular pitfall traps, with the appearance of a striking cobra. Pitchers grow up to 90 cm tall. The maroon and green flowers look a little like a Snakes Head Fritillary. A vigorous plant that will soon colonise large containers with it's quick growing rhizome, new plants sprouting out the edge of the pot. Hardy down to -13 degrees C (at our nursery). Grow in dappled shade and avoid midday sun. Try to keep the roots cool. We keep in water trays with the Sarracenias and always use rainwater.
