Arum italicum subsp. italicum 'Marmoratum' is an attractive plant with large, arrow-shaped, glossy green leaves heavily marbled with cream. Over time it makes a dense carpet that covers the ground from late autumn till mid spring. In spring pale green spathes grow well above the leaves, followed in autumn by a display of vivid red berries. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Arum italicum subsp. italicum 'Marmoratum' in moist but well-drained soil in shade, ideally beneath trees and shrubs. It's also suitable for underplanting hosta.

This is a good hardy plant and the leaves are beautiful as are the big orange berries that come in winter .Mine sadly after a long years of growing have gone.Due to too much rain.Becareful if young children around as the berries are very toxic.
