Arum 2009
« on: March 14, 2009, 12:03:02 PM »
Two of the Arum are in flower at the moment.
A. dioscoridis is a stunner heaving many color patterns, I find the one in the photo particularly nice since it is only bi-colored without the reddish background. not recommended for people with sensitive nose.
A. hygrophilum has nice arrow like leafs and grows in humid, often shades places.
Tivon, in the lower Galilee, north Israel.

Most Arums have very attractive foliage mixed with the proper plants in a border.

very nice! especially the first..i've only recently seen these temperate aroids; not yet sure what might be hardy here (i dont mean these species), hopefully a couple, but otherwise, i will probably have to try some in pots...

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.

Amazing plants, Oron!
Cohan, I haven't even found the most likely one (I think), Arum italicum, to be hardy here, but... not so showy as Oron's and not quite the same thing, but Arum (Arisaema) triphyllum, is hardy here (not surprisingly, given its natural range).  Other arisaema that are hardy here (also in my experience) are A. flavum and A. amurense.  There are, undoubtedly, others I haven't tried that are hardy. (This spring, I will get to see if A. consanguineum  is hardy here, from a bunch of last year's seedlings.. I generally assume it will be, or I wouldn't bother with the seeds, LOL!)

tks lori--yes, i thought there should be some arisaema; i think i have seen a few listings in kristl's seeds, and beavercreek (though johnw has cast some doubt on beavercreek's hardiness listings) that are supposed to be zone 3...of course i know that's no guarantee, nor am i certain if i am zone 3, anyway!...lol
i dont think i will get as far as arum's this year..

Hi Cohan:

             Several Arisaemas, including triphyllum (a number of variants), dracontium, and amurense, among others should be hardy with you.

tks for the tips, alberto, i am looking forward to trying some :) i guess many  of these are woodland plants, so that's suitable for much of my place!

Stunning! After seeing those absolute beauties, I can't wait for the next spring over here in NZ. Keep those photos coming to get me through, cheers.

Doug,

If you grow the species Arum pictum you don't have to wait for spring..... it's flowers emerge with it's leaves in autumn.  I find a lot of the other species flower quite early in spring/ mid-to-late winter here.
Cheers.
