  • Subject: Arum

Dear all;
A little mentioned genus on this forum is Arum. In the last few years I have grown increasingly fond of the species and have been slowly expanding my collection. A few recent additions have invigorated me to drop this note. The literature suggests that most of the species are somewhat tender, but I have had success with Arum italicum and maculatum (who hasn't?) but also A. dioscoridis, A elongatum, A. nigrum and more recently with a few others. I also grow a couple more tender species in a cold green house- A. concinnatum, A purpureospathum etc.

Dr. Peter Boyce has produced an excellent starting point for discussions here with his book 'The Genus Arum'. Thanks again, Pete.

I'd like to hear of others with hardiness experience and a willingness to trade.

I currently have a few extra tubers of A concinnatum (small), A byzantinum (few) and one or two others.

I'd like to get other potentially hardy species (such as A. alpinum, creticum, korolkowii etc.) or selected forms of any of those mentioned earlier, such as A. maculatum 'Painted Lady', etc.

These are mostly just going dormant and making seed heads now. A good time to dig, divide, trade etc.

Anyone have 2 cents to add for this Arumophile?

Thanks Jim W.
