Arum (Lords-and-Ladies)

Lords-and-Ladies. All winter hardy Arum species offered here are easily cultivated and are suited for any rich, well drained soil, which is slightly moist in summer and drier in winter. Excellent to naturalize in partially shaded to sunny spots in the open garden. Plant corms rather deep for some additional frost protection.
Sow at some 10°C - 15°C throughout the year in any rich soil, higher temperatures may inhibit germination in most Arum species. Arum maculatum requires a cold stratification for several months, place pots outside in a protected spot during winter. Germination occurs either in late autumn or late spring. Keep seedlings preferably frostfree and sunny in their first winter at a minimum of some 5°C. Transplant dormant corms in the second spring after sowing.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6 unless noted differently.
10 seeds per package or per dormant corm.

Note: All corms are available for a delivery within Europe only ! Seeds are shipped worldwide. For Non-European customers only: We do ship dormant tubers outside Europe, provided that all risk is upon the buyer. We do not issue any phytosanitary certificate, which is officially required for most countries. We kindly ask you to check with your local import regulations before placing an order!
