Arum pictum

Fall Flowering Arum

Plant Type:

BULBS

Arum pictum - This is an entirely separate species and should not be confused with the better know A. italicum 'Pictum'. The Fall Flowering Arum sports large deep red-purple spathes in a rich shade with large, fat spadices in an even darker shade. The leaves rise with the spathes. As these are seed grown the bold foliage will vary from solid green to those exhibiting silver veining. Mottled or not the leaves are broad, semi-glossed and beautiful. Adding to the beauty is new leaves upon emerging may also be infused with purple as they unfurl. Leaves may remain green in fall and winter with mottling emerging and becoming evident in the spring. Fertile to average ground that drains. Established potted Arum from seed.We find all the aroids fascinating, primitive, oddly alluring, curious, with some - those emitting dangerous scent exude lurid malevolence. They are amazing. Their texture is unequaled in the garden adding exceptional interest, excitement and primitive presence.
