This insectivorous plant gets its head down for the winter (lower, coloured leaves). In late spring, new growth starts. those leaves (pitchers) will colour up in the sun.

    Thanks, Brian.

    Yes, hence the popular name Cobra Lily. It is not related to lilies at all. On the other hand, Arisaema speciosum, also known as the Cobra Lily, is an Arum.

    It has a reputation for being difficult to cultivate but I find it thrives when Sarracenias do not.
