Arum maculatum

Description

Arum maculatum, or Lords-and-Ladies, is a native species first emerging with dark green, arrow-shaped, glossy leaves followed by small blooms in a dense brownish-purple spike enlosed in a sheath. The sheath is light green with tight purple margins and hooded at the top. Green berries appear on the spadix after it is pollinated and these eventually turn a bright red. Thrives in shady areas including hedges and woodland.
