Audrey's Plantmania

An Annapolis gardener sharing her bounty at bargain prices

Arum Italicum April 14, 2010

Dark, shiny, veiny leaves make a startling statement in the part sun or shade garden.  12″ high leaves are out fall through spring, evergreen in winter. They die back in the summer and the plant flowers, with a white jack-in-the-pulpit like flower.  Then the flower stalk produces berries which turn bright red.  In the fall the leaves return.  A very unique plant!
