In the late summer, the tropical aroid foliage emerges from dormancy to remain 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, the plant goes to sleep for the summer, emerging again in late August. Italian arum will naturalize in woodland areas, albeit a slow process... I wouldn't garden without it!
