Snakes Up!

It's easy to forget how cool Arisaemas look when they first raise up in the cool early spring, like so many cobras raising their dark heads, to eye the garden... wonderfully sinister amongst all the bright, frilly daffodils and primroses.

These look great, and do add an interesting sinister touch to the garden. I've tried Green Cobra Lily (Arisaema tortuosa) for the first time in Melbourne, and it finished flowering in early December - do you know if you can successfully propagate the seeds?

Great blog!

Cheers, Sam.
