Wordless Wednesday - Arum Italicum

June 3, 2011

How beautiful is that?
I was glad to see your name in my comment list SG. I have meant to come check on you but you know how it is this time of year. I was hoping you were just busy and nothing terrible had gone wrong.
Hope you are getting in some garden time. Hugs.

Your blog title is funny. Sometimes it seems that way. I have that same plant - Arum italicum. Mine has never bloomed but it is probably too immature. I keep forgetting the name so I'm glad to see it here.
I'm a new follower, so I'll be back.

We have these plants, ours never have looked as good as yours! The bottle wall I have done just a little to it. Gets in the 90s who wants to be out there in the sun.

Hi Kathleen, well it has been an emotional ride this past month and a half. However, things are looking up... And it has been busy. Thank you for your concern. It's nice to have you visit, too. :-)

Hi Nellie, I think it took 2 - 3 years for my plants to bloom. These particular plants get more sun than those in other sites... and they're the only ones that have bloomed so far. Hopefully the others catch up before too long. Thanks for the following! :-)

Hi Randy, As I explained to Nellie (above), these plants get a lot more bright light than those in other sites... it must make a difference.
Understand your dilemma. We've been enjoying a cool spell lately (with a lot (Lot) of rain).

Beautiful pictures, I'm sorry things have been difficult lately, I hope they improve for you soon.

Shady Silently I say "Lovely"

Shady Gardener said...

Thank you, Rebecca. They are. :-)

Hi Rosemary. :-)

Grace said...

It looks good enough to eat! Isn't green the best color?

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Grace, They were very fresh looking at that time, weren't they? Not so much now, though. ;-)

Looks like a house plant that I have...what do I know :)
Wondering if my ajuga can be put in something like hypertufa planters when it spreads too much.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Patsi, I understand completely when you refer to ajuga that spreads too much!! I pulled a Bunch that had gotten into the lawn, today! I have a love/hate with this plant. I think a planter might be worth a try... kind of a "specimen plant?" ;-)
