Looking for a striking addition to your garden? Look no further than the Arum italicum, also known as Cuckoo's Pint, Italian Arum, or Italian Lords and Ladies. This gorgeous flowering perennial plant is native to the Mediterranean region but can also be found in scattered locations worldwide. It grows to be 12 inches high and blooms in spring with distinctive white flowers that turn into showy red fruit. The leaves of the Arum italicum are also noteworthy, with subspecies italicum featuring distinctive pale veins. This plant is perfect to cultivate in traditional and woodland shade gardens, and some gardeners even use it to underplant with Hosta for year-round ground cover. However, it's important to keep in mind that this plant can be invasive and contains poisonous compounds in leaves, fruits, and rhizomes, making it unsuitable for those with young children or pets. But with proper care and attention, the Arum italicum can be a stunning addition to any garden.
