Plant and Flower Photos: Cobra Lily

Musashi Abumi (ムサシアブミ) in Japan



The flower is shaped like an antique samuri stirrup used on warriors saddles.

In the Western world, it is said, to resemble a cobra snake, poised to strike.

The plants grow well in moist forest soil  and, are found in China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.

This one, I should take a marker pen and, draw some eyes on for you.

It's potted in a planter at a shaded spot of the wife's garden and, I shot it with the Canon G12.
