Another Arum that ticks the boxes of both gardeners and florists. A prolific flower producer for months on end. The tall spathes are up to 20cm and a handsome combination of cream and green.
The foliage is Arum Lily ‘Green Point’ is mid to dark green, It is lush and forms a generous clump in the garden. As well as the blooms the leaves make a lovely addition to the vase. From planting they take 8-16 weeks to bloom depending on conditions.
Grow Arum Lily ‘Green Point’ in a full sun to semi shaded spot with humus rich, moist soil. Their height and form is perfect for the middle of a bed or border. We have also found them quite successful in large pots. Water in then keep them moist in active growth, if they dry out they will surely sulk. A layer of compost mulch in summer will help keep the soil up to their standard and aid with water retention. Arum lilies don’t like to be disturbed so give them a full season to settle and be at their best.
Arum lilies have made a bad name for themselves as invasive, it has to be said they will settle in by a stream or pond and grow to a nice clump, but they will not roam – so don’t dump their tubers anywhere that you don’t want them to grow and there isn’t a worry.
