Arum creticum

Arums are unusual plants, with flowers consisting of a hood, called a spathe, with the sexual parts, the spadix, inside. The spathe has interesting colours, usually muted greens, browns, creams, often with vertical stripes. The flowers are followed by dense spikes of red fruit in the autumn.

Arum creticum has attractive, scented, pale yellow spathes in spring. As its name indicates, it comes from Crete, but it also occurs on Karpathos and on the Turkish mainland. If you live in a cold area, choose a protected spot for this worthwhile plant.
