Arum italicum ‘Winter White’


Italian Arum

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.077.120


This improved selection of Italian Arum has arrowhead shaped leaves with dramatic cream marbling. Foliage appears in fall then remains until spring. Hooded white flowers in late spring are followed by a grand display of orange berries in August, held in heads like a rattle. Although this is a little slow to establish, plants will remain for years in the garden. Clumps may be divided in summer after the leaves die down. Plants prefer a moist woodland setting but will tolerate summer dryness. Foliage is useful for winter flower arrangements. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten/skin and eye irritant.
