Bog Arum

Calla palustris


A rambling plant with heart-shaped leaves, white flowers are followed by bright red seed heads. This is one of the very few plants known to be pollinated by snails as they are attracted by the flower's scent. Harmful is eaten/skin & eye irritant. Not to be confused with the similar flowering plant Arum Lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica 'crowborough').

This plant will die back to its basket for winter, and begin growing again in the spring. Trim off brown stems/leaves in the autumn to tidy it up.

The recommended depth in water is calculated as the distance between the top of the basket and the water surface. Therefore "0" would be the basket rim at the water surface.
