Found in a seedbed- Arisaema ciliatum var. liubaiense

Another species of Cobra Lily, related to Jack-in-the-Pulpit. This bunch is from China, and according to its label was started from seed in 2003. Quick to flower -- compared to Peonies! and totally caught me by surprise when I noticed it yesterday (23 June). The spathe is really lovely, lime-green with brown, and a long whip-tail off its tip.

The lactiflora peonies are about to start opening up or just have, so of course it poured rain today.

The World Cup match schedule on tv has thinned out a bit so I should be able to get more regular in posting to this weblog...

It looks good, up close, in the enlarged photo.
It reminds me of our "Greenhood Orchids", in general shape, but, of course, totally unrelated.
