Awesome! Makes me think of our friend Jack-in-the-Pulpit, whom we encountered along the Shepaug on Saturday. Is Jack a lily, too, by any chance?

Hi Jams, thanks. The botanical world holds many treasures.

Hi Sandy, They are very closely related, same genus (first name). Both are not in the Lily family they have there own group. Japanese Cobra Lily is just the common name.

I don't think I've seen that plant before, so it looks kind of weird to me... I wonder what the rest of the plant looks like. It is interesting! :)

Outstanding photo! I always wanted a rice cake jack in the pulpit but they are always so expensive and I'm afraid I'd kill it.
