Also known as: Orange Candleflower, Cuckoo pint and Italian Lords & Ladies. Arum italicum is a year-round plant which is at its best in winter and early spring when the arrowshaped mottled white leaves are very striking. They create dream-like atmospheres when combined with early flowering white narcissi. The whitish inconspicuous blooms in summer are followed by brightly orange colored berries in autumn. Attractive foliage ends out the season on this unique beauty. Interplant near Hosta since they have opposite bloom time.

Features of Genus:

How to Plant Shade Perennials?

 

To plant Shade Perennials the bulbs should be planted with the nose of the bulb upward (or the roots facing downwards) and the Italicum Arum should be planted roughly 3-4" deep and 5-7" apart from one another.

Note: For some bulbs you may not be able to tell which way is up or down, in these cases just plant them on their side and they will adjust on their own.

When to Plant Italicum Arum?

  Shade Perennials are normally planted SPRING, and most Italicum Arum will begin to flower sometime in Early Summer.
