Arum dioscoridis

Spotty Arum

Peter Boyce in his monograph on the genus writes “...this species is deservedly popular with aroid fanciers.....Most clones are hardy, free-flowering and have handsome coloration. “ He points out the one disadvantage that Arum dioscoridis has and that is its smell “... akin to a mixture of dung and rotting flesh. The flower is spectacular, a pale green spathe with dark purple blotches and staining. Easily grown in any sunny or lightly shaded spot in the garden. 70cm tall by 60cm across.
