Peltandra virginica (Arrow Arum)

8.00

Arrow Arum is a semi-aquatic, swamp loving relative of the Jack-in-the-pulpit. It has large tropical looking arrow shaped leaves under which bloom a large greenish-yellow flower like a “jack” but closed and only rarely open. The preference is for lightly shaded swamps, creeks, or muddy lake-shores. Grows 1-2 foot tall. Flowers appear in June-July. A beautiful plant for foliage texture when mixed with ferns or sedges and rushes. Good for erosion control as the large roots hold loose mud in creeks and streams. Zone 3-9. VA ecotype.
