As a comment about Cobra Lily (Arisaema ringens), SongofJoy wrote:

Japanese Cobra Lily is a very elegant cousin of Jack-in-the-Pulpit. The flower is composed of a thick purple and white striped spathe that curls down, resembling a cobra's head. The spadix, or Jack, is dark purple. Single flower stalks come up in mid-spring below a pair of giant, 3-lobed, glossy and thick green leaves reaching about 12 inches tall. Unlike many other Arisaemas, the foliage stays up all summer. Although it is very easy to grow, excessive winter moisture is death to these plants. In time, they may form large clumps.

Hello,
I think I may have just got one rhizome.
I have seen so many sites stating this is hardy to zone 6 even 5 and on some other sites that if the ground freezes, it should be grown in a pot.
Now... who should I trust?
I'd like to hear from people who actually have this in their garden.
Also... winter rains and snows are the norm here. How can I keep it on the dry side? Would covering the area with a plastic cover or something else work?
OR
Should I just grow it in a pot???
