Arum italicum ‘Marmoratum’ – Italian arum/Lords & Ladies/Cuckoo Pint (for Click and Collect only)
Attractive autumn and winter foliage plant with glossy green spear-shaped leaves with a tracery of pale veins. Leaves unfurl in autumn, lasting through winter and into April when they are followed by unusual greenish-white flowers – an upright creamy coloured spadix surrounded by a greeny-white spathe rather like an upturned collar. Stems of orangey-red berries appear above the bare earth in August/September and last through until the new leaves begin to unfurl. Happy in most conditions and will grow in full sun but thrives in rich, damp woodland conditions. Looks good when many other plants are going to bed for winter and will brighten up a dark gloomy corner of the garden. Excellent groundcover but can be slightly invasive. All parts are toxic by ingestion. Height/spread: 30cm x 50cm
