On Gardeners World last Friday Monty was planting ferns to grow in the shade of his "Lime Walk". Just after 14 mins into the programme, when he was digging the hole for the second fern, I spotted a plant in the centre of the bottom of the screen which I have in my garden. It grows about a foot tall and has green berries along the stem turning bright orange. I would be really grateful if anyone can tell me what it is called.

Is it a Berberis?  I think Darwinnii has orange berries.

Could be Lords and Ladies.   Sorry, can't for the life of me remember the proper name for it!  I'll come back if I do think of the name......(that's age for you!).

Lords and Ladies is Arum Iticulatum - ~I got the wrong end of the stick with berberis. Is it this?


Yipppeee, thanks for the name Sara 4 - that's the one!  I vaguely remember seeing the plant on GW last Friday.


Yes it was definitely Arum Italicum 

Thank you all for your replies. It is definitely Arum Italicum.
