Oron,

Fantastic!!  I've never seen that species before.... but I just love the texture.  I must try to find out whether that is available anywhere in Australia.  I'd grow it for the texture alone, but being an aroid as well makes it even more of interest to me.  8)  Great stuff!!

Thanks again. :)
Cheers.

Thanks Oron, fascinating to see. We used to grow E. spiculatum albovirens from Egypt for many years but being a single plant it never set seed and eventually died off.

A. dioscoridis certainly is a real stunner.
What are the tiny blue flowers next to it?
I had these growing in my yard in Australia, I just thought it was a type of chickweed, also had orange flowered ones.


They are pimpernels (Anagallis sp.), aren't they?

Yes Jim, these are Anagallis arvensis, a very common plant here.

Fred do you grow the dark form as well?

Arum palaestinum starts to bloom now.

This is the largest species here, when it has good growing conditions , flowers are huge.

I tend to think that there are also hybrids between A. palaestinum and A. dioscoridis resulting in spotted dark flowers.

Oron, I only grow the typical form and never seen the dark form...
Your Arum palaestinum is ( again ) wonderfull !
I grow it but they are still young plants ....
I also think you're right about the possibly hybrid origin of your plant as the typical form is unspotted.
Anyway, this is a very nice form !!!
Do you know if it grows higher in the mountains ?

Fred,
There is a population of A. palaestinum at 1050m on Mt. Hermon, these are very robust plants and certinally more hardy then other populations.
