I'm not sure if you'd want to find a snake's head in your garden but this unusual and striking lily that produces exquisite reddish-brown to purple flowers, with a scaly chequered pattern, won't make you run away! It's a very hardy and frost tolerant plant that looks wonderful in a garden bed or hanging over a rockery. It's very showy when displayed inside in your vase or as part of a bouquet.
