Arum pictum

Large maroon spathe shelters a dark purple, almost black, spadix and these nestle alongside shiny, purplish and silver leaves which are very beautiful, and persist throughout winter and spring. Unlike other members of its tribe it makes a dramatic appearance in the autumn, just when you least expect to see it!
