Gosh Tony. Some lovely arums. Seeing as you've shown us yours I'll have to show you mine, but they are a day or two off unfurling. Am halfway through cleaning out my west-facing bed. Two wheely bins of phlox and astilbes have already gone to that big compost bin in the sky. ;)

Tony,

Thanks for the confirmation of rupicola.  Haven't seen it before.  Have seen pics of euxinum before, but not as nice as that.  Neither species have I seen here for sale, although I was given a piece that is supposed to be euxinum but has not flowered for me (or the source) as yet.

Great pics.  8)
Cheers.

Some more in flower now.The one from Cyprus is very strange and although I have been told it is a dioscoridis I wonder if it is a hybrid with rupicola.Some plants have more spotting like dioscoridis but it is very flag like in its growth.
 arum13 dioscoridis cyprus
 arum20 elongatum turkey iznit
 arum 154 alpinum greece florina
 arum sp turkey macka trabzon
 arum dioscoridis turkey k'maras


The last one is a dioscoridis in the wild,a little difficult to see but quite spectacular.

Tony,

Great to see so many species that I don't grow.  I just love the elongatum, and that Cyprus dioscoridis is very unusual.  I certainly never would have picked it as that species, not in a month of Sundays.  :o

More plants on my want list now..... must do some research and find out how many more Arum species there are that I am unfamiliar with and need to have in my collection.  ;D ;)
Cheers.

I find it very hard to accept that the top pic would be A. dioscoridis Tony.

Lesley I agree that it is difficult to accept as dioscoridis but that is what an expert told me. Here is another from Cyprus no 15 and you can sss that it has similarities with my no 51 which is a dioscoridis from Turkey. The numbers are my database records, I have about 120 arum collections

I think it is a hybrid but I am no expert
