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 Boyce’s book one of these bloom seasons. 

Hope this helps.  Jim W.
