It's been fourteen years since we've had any of our 2006 introduction to spare, so if you like these, don't wait. Arum 'Silver Cloud' is a Plant Delights/JLBG selection of Arum italicum from a seed crop of Arum 'Chamaeleon'. The silvery leaf center of the large spade-like leaves is surrounded by a contrasting green border with a smaller green pattern in the leaf center. In NC, the leaves emerge in late September/early October and persist throughout the winter until they flower in late April/early May. The flower is composed of a large lime-green spathe with a protruding, stiff green spadix. After flowering, Arum 'Silver Cloud' hibernates (brumates) for summer, so don't panic.
