That is definitely A. italicum var. 'pictum'.   I should be so lucky
to have it spread out!   For what they cost, I'd like to have more!
I've had a bed of about fifty plants out for three years and they've
not expanded outward any that I can tell.  Mine seem to be rather
shallow rooted and their tubers grows over on their side.  It must
be that Pacific Northwest climate and good rich dirt that is doing
it.  Here in NE TN we have long cool autumns that causes quite a bit
of growth, fairly cold winters that stops them and then wet springs
with wildly swinging temps until the long, hot and dry summer hits
that's sends them into dormancy.  Somewhat similar to their native
habitat from what I understand.  Maybe she should consider raising
them to sell, just buy a long nursery spade to get way down deep!

: Hi all,
: I received email from a gardener in Oregon who had read my article
: Arum italicum and wrote saying that it had become a weed on her
: invading the garden and herb beds.  Since my one clump has not
: expanded all that much in years and doesn't set seed regularly, I
: replied wondering whether she could have another plant - and sent
: links to various Arum images on the web.
