I let myself to make small changes, just to let people outside Texas know where Fort Worth is and that Typhonium sp. (the original picture) is not Arum.
Best Regards,

Thanks for your email.  Attached was sent out to a very few people in the Fort Worth area.  I am in my missionary mode and trying to get converts to Arum and aroids in general.
Speaking of James Waddick and I must speak of our other mutual love, Lycoris.  This was not a good year for Lycoris radiata in that there were only 20 or so blooms in my front yard, last year there were over 500.  My biggest disappointment, however, is Lycoris albiflora and Lycoris aurea, neither of which bloomed this year, their second year in my Lycoris garden.  Now the foliage is all up like nothing happened and that is true, nothing did.  I didn't expect flowers from the Spring foliage Lycoris or from new acquisitions, but those two better get with it or they are going to get thrown out in a couple of years.  :)

I am interested in the experiences of others, particularly with hygrophyllum and, maybe, rupicola. 

Dear David and all, 
I have grown Arum hygrophilum (note spelling?) in the Kansas City metro area for upwards of 10 years. This is a Zone 5/6 location with extended droughts and low rainfall. Although we have already had a couple nights of 15 F the foliage remains undamaged. Colder nights are expected and some more foliage damages, too.  It recovers in spring  and blooms regularly. In short reliable and hardy here.

This spring I planted some tubers of Arum creticum after years of thinking they were too tender. I saw a single plant in bloom in a garden just north of Wichta, KS and was inspired. So far the foliage is just emerging and remains undamaged. Fingers firmly crossed.

I have a plant labelled rupicola which survives here, but I have doubts to ID and must compare to Peter Boyceâs book one of these bloom seasons. 

Hope this helps.  Jim W.
