Marmoratum Italian Arum
Marmoratum Italian Arum Arum italicum subsp. italicum ‘Marmoratum’ A showy spike of berries is the final event for this three-season performer. Berries start green and turn orange then red in late summer. In spring, 10-14" arrowhead-shaped glossy green leaves with cream-colored veins emerge, followed in early summer by a pale greenish-yellow cape-like flower hood called a spathe, itself 6-16" long. The yellow flower stalk, or spadix, contains many tiny pale flowers tightly packed on the stalk, which give way to those tightly packed berries.

Also called Italian Lords-and-Ladies. Related to our native Jack-in-the-Pulpit.

Plant rhizomes 4-6" deep in well-drained rich moist soil, in full to partial shade to dappled sun. With protection, Z5-9, 12-18". Topsize.

Additional Information

Miscellaneous Bulbs

is the name the Royal General Bulbgrowers Association in Holland (Koninklijke Algemeene Vereeniging voor Bloembollencultuur, or KAVB) gives to this large group of flowers. The expensive catalogs call them specialty or accent bulbs; some call them minor or dwarf bulbs (even though some of the fritillaries are huge!); Louise Beebe Wilder covered most of them in her 1936 classic Adventures with Hardy Bulbs. Whatever you call them, most are uncommonly sweet, delicate, colorful, and completely welcome in spring.

  • approximate height at flowering time,
