Arum creticum


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Cretan Arum. Aside from Crete, this is found in Turkey as well. A beautiful species that checks the boxes for drought/heat tolerance as this is a summer dormant bulb. The green leaves appear in fall and have been undamaged here in winter drops to 10F so guessing can go lower. Scented soft yellow spathes. Not flowering size, plant in well-drained soil 3" deep in sun and enjoy.
