About This Image
The Arum Lilies in my garden are just beginning to bloom. They are a special plant to me because they came from a plant that my parents grew in their garden for many years.
This is an old fashioned, but very rewarding garden plant. Zantedeschia is named after Professor Zantedeschi, probably Giovanni Zantedeschi, 1773-1846, an Italian physician and botanist, although there is some uncertainty about this. Although called the arum lily, it is neither an arum ( the genus Arum) nor a lily ( genus Lilium). But it is associated with the lily as a symbol of purity and these elegant flowers have graced many bridal bouquets.
It is an excellent cut flower and lasts a long time in water.
Thanks for viewing. :)
