[Aroid-l] Arum pictum

Hi folks -

Was researching a bit and came across this Arum species. I have not been able to find out much information (guess I need to go check the library for a copy of The Genus Arum, by Peter Boyce) about this autumn flowering bulb (the only one in the genus, apparently).

Arum pictum appears to be native to Italy, Sardenia, and other western Mediterranean areas(?). The flowers are dark burgundy/black and the leaves which follow are dark green with lighter veins and a distinct dark red edge to the leaf. Here are a couple of photos I've found:

Does anyone out there have experience with it?
Thanks in advance,
Seán O.
