Description
The Arum family is famous for wide-leaved foliage plants with unique flowers. The color here comes from two beautiful parts: The deep green wide leaves are spotted white a lot like some calla lilies. And more color comes from curious stacks of shiny orange berries the plants hold for weeks. A great plant for botanical interest in the garden.

    Comments about American Meadows Biltmore Estate Bulbs Arum italicum - Bag of 3:

    I love these because in winter when my hostas are dormant the green leaves of Arum are lovely. In summer the leaves are gone but the orange berries provide color in my deep shade forest and I can enjoy them from my kitchen window.
