Plant Overview

The Italian Arum Lily, brought to this country in 1683. A striking plant with bold cream markings along the leaf veins. In spring pale green flowers appear well above the leaves, followed in autumn by a display of vivid red berries but it's really grown for the foliage.

Over time forms a good ground cover. Ideal for growing under trees and shrubs.

Height and spread: 30cm x 30cm

Common name(s): Italian Arum Lily, Large Cuckoo Pint, Lords and Ladies.

Toxic if eaten.


All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
