Who could be unmoved by the wonderful marbled green and cream leaves of Arum italicum subsp. italicum ‘Marmoratum’? The name’s a bit of a mouthful, but think of it as the showier version of Arum maculatum, or Lords and Ladies, to use one of its common names (it has several, most of them – including this one – a bit rude, owing to the shape of its flowering parts). Best in shaded woodland areas, requiring a firm hand in the garden.
