We are very pleased to offer this rare arum species, not to be confused with the common Arum italicum 'Pictum'. Arum pictum is from the Mediterranean islands and is the only Arum species to flower in the fall. The marvelous black-purple spathe and spadix emerge in September alongside the emerging glossy green foliage. I'd grow this species for the leaves alone, which emerge bordered with a lovely purple cast. The stunning flowers, both in their macabre beauty and memorable fragrance (like running over a skunk), are delightful additions.
