Hi Zoe, pretty sure this is the same plant someone else asked about the other day.

Check this one out The ID was for:


Arum Italicum
Arum maculatum variegated
"Arum italicum subsp. italicum 'Marmoratum'"

FYI - All parts, including berries, are highly toxic by ingestion; skin and eye irritant too.

Another very useful comment: "This 'butter wouldn't melt' beauty vies with Horseradish in the rankings of 'hard to kill' garden plants!"

"Arum italicum marmoratum. Fabulous leaves and typical arum spathes in Summer"

Hope that helps!.

Arum maculatum otherwise known as "lords-and-ladies". Described somewhere as a 'useful autumn perennial' - but I believe it is toxic and spreads madly - so you decide!

Plant identification

Comment from Ann Hales

In forum: Identify a plant

Thick, strappy grey/blue leaves. Seed heads much like that of Arum Maculatum, but pendulous, rather than upright.

It's arum maculatum (cuckoo pint). Pretty, but toxic - both leaves and berries - and is an irritant if handled.

Bit tricky to tell, but I think it might be the first growth leaves of Arum maculatum (Lords and Ladies)

Peter do you have your chemical handling licence? If so you require Glycophate 360 a very powerful form, not weak as in the over the counter versions, if you don'y it is worth paying a licensed person to come in and hit it by weed wiping Spring when they are in full lush growth and in the summer for any regrowth. Link to the manufacturers site http://www.dowagro.com/uk/products/prod/glyph360.htm
Good Luck

Arum maculatum - Very Invasive

Question from Peter Beighton

In forum: Arum maculatum

I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to eradicate this invasive plant from a garden ? This is my experience:

This appears to be a very invasive plant and is beginning to take over the garden. It is coming up in new places every year even though I never let a plant get to the berry forming stage.
i) Digging out is almost impossible as it has very deep bulbs and the main bulbs seem to be surrounded by other very tiny bulbs which can easily get left behind in the soil.
ii) It does not seem to react to glyphosate. I thought I was having some success by rubbing the glyphosate into the waxy leaves with rubber gloves (the plant is poisonous as well as the glyphosate) but the plants came back the following year.

Could be Arum maculatum. It usually comes up in spring, but the weather has confused many plants. The berries are toxic, not sure about the rest of the plant.

Re: Arum italicum

Message from Vivienne Jenkins

In forum: Arum italicum subsp. italicum 'Marmoratum'

Hi there,
Can anyone help me, please? I bought and sowed some Arum italicum seeds back in early July. So far only two seeds have germinated but the initial leaves are plain green with no sign of variagation. Is this normal or have I been sold Arum maculatum seeds, do you think?

Arum maculatum

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

In forum: Arum maculatum

Its orange-red berries, in the autumn, are attractive but poisonous, producing a burning sensation in the mouth. Its root was once used as a source of starch in the days when collars and cuffs were stiff and white.The flowers produce a pungent smell which attracts carrion-feeding flies. The insects, crawling downwards in search of nectar, brush against the pollen-bearing stamens. Many insects die in this process, since they are unable to escape, but this is not a carnivorous plant: the deaths are merely incidental to the plant's reproductive cycle.
