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.

    Stunning plant of a good size which arrived quickly and safely which isn’t surprising as great care had obviously been taken with the packaging. Highly recommended!

    I bought the smallest size in summer 2018 and planted it in a customer zeer pot. (pot within a pot of sand which keeps roots cool) and planted it in full sun with the roots hidden under other plants. Its doubled in size and throwing out so many new pitchers.
    I left it outside the whole year over winter and its even had 3 inches of snow on it and its still going very strong.
    Love this plant

    I have had one of these for over 5yrs and water its tray everyday so the plant is living in a boggy soil. I t has grown massive and has now produced what I think is a flower pod head but i am unsure weather to remove it or not.

    A lovely plant and beautifully wrapped. I will buy my plants from no where else now.
    If you are in doubt I suggest you go for it you will not be disappointed.

    Just received my plants today and the condition of all of them are great but the cobra lily was the main thing I wanted and it doesn’t disappoint,I have bought them from shows in the past and they haven’t been as beautiful as this one is and packaged really carefully!
