(syn: A. orientale ssp. sintenisii) Native to damp shade as well as open woodland conditions on Cyprus, Arum sintenisii (named after German botanist Paul Ernst Emil Sintenis) produces large 1' tall, arrow-shaped, green leaves in fall. Arum sintenisii differs from Arum orientale primarily by its fragrance which is "a sweet fermenting odor" according to Peter Boyce in "The Genus Arum." If our temperatures drop below 10 degrees F, the foliage will be damaged, only to regrow when the weather warms. The May-produced, purple-stained, white hood (spathe) houses a narrow green-and-purple sex organ (spadix)...who knew? Arum sintenisii should be more heat-tolerant than other members of the genus.
