In late summer, the tropical-looking foliage of Arum italicum emerges from dormancy and remains attractive all winter. Each glossy green, arrowhead-shaped leaf features dramatic silver patterning, usually following the veins. In late spring, 12" white peace lily-like flowers appear, followed by an attractive stalk of red berries. At this point, Arum italicum 'Marmoratum' goes to sleep for the summer, emerging again in late August. Italian arum will naturalize slowly in woodland areas unless a horticultural circumcision is performed after flowering. I wouldn't garden without this amazing aroid!
