Artist's Description

An amazing looking member of the Arum family. Here in the US we have 3 varieties: Green/purple, All green, and a gorgeous purple/white/green one. THAT one I’d LOVE to see face to face. My area of the woods caries the first 2 varieties.
Every part of this beautiful flower is toxic. Many stories tell of how Native American tribes would throw pieces of the corm root into their food if they knew their villiage was about to be overtaken by enemies. The invaders always ate the food…then spent days with cramping and throwing up.
A mosquito catcher that blooms in Spring…I finally collected some corms and planted them in my garden. So far I only have one bloom but as years go on they’ll reproduce nicely. In the fall after the flower and leaves die off a wonderful ‘seed’ bundle appears….a vibrant BRILLIANT cone of red berries.
