‘Painted Arum’, or sometimes called Italian Arum, Cuckoo’s Pint, or Italian Lords and Ladies. In the fall the variegated arrowhead leaves emerge in a clump, and can get as large as 12 inches long. If the winter is mild, they last like this all winter long. If it gets extremely cold for an extended period of time, they can die back, but then re-grow again late winter / early spring. In late spring, the Painted Arum sends up white flowers with a yellow spadix in the center, similar to a Peace lily. The foliage then dies back, and the flower produces stalks covered with bright orange red berries for the summer. In the fall, the new foliage emerges and the process starts all over again. Arum likes shade to partial shade areas and loamy soils. Plant them with other shade perennials like hostas, and when those perennials are dying back in the fall, and the Arum are starting to grow and fill in the blank areas until mid spring next year. Then as they die back, the berried stalks add late spring and summer interest.
