This is an early June portrait of a Hachijo Island Cobra Lily.
It is not mature until August, when it develops
white stripes on a flower lifted above the foliage,
but at this stage the leaves have greatly
outpaced the spathe which is still a small green flower.
Here 'tis a few days later in June, from another angle.
The Hachijo spathe is slowly lifting itself upward,
closing the distance between the spathe's snout & the
as-yet overhead leaves.
For more information & photos about
the Hachijo Island Cobra Lily, go to the
Arisaema hachijoense Page.
