Arum palaestinum (Palaestinum Arum) slide #62064

Arum palaestinum (Palaestinum Arum)

Sun to Part SunZone: 7b-10, at least 15" tall Origin: Syria, Lebanon, Israel

Open House/Web-Only! This Palestinian native is one of our favorite arums that has thrived in our garden for more than two decades, despite effort by the Arum palaestinum Liberation Organization (APLO) to extricate it. During the fall, dark green, trowel-shaped foliage emerges from the tuber to form a nice clump of foliage that remains up during the winter. In late April the bizarre, purple black, tail-like sex appendage (spadix) emerges from within a wicked looking shell-like spathe. The smell resembles rotting fruit... not that I'm an expert on odors. A. palaestinum prefers a dry site in the winter with good drainage. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
