arums produce their often showy, undivided leaves (related Arisaema has
divided leaves) from tubers in fall and retain them all winter long; they are arrow
shaped and often decorated with contrasting marbling. Flowers typical of the
Araceae, composed of a hood-like spathe surrounding the erect spadix, appear
in spring. If pollinated, bright red berries (favorite food for wildlife) appear on the

Among the white-flowered Peach-leaved Bell- flowers the one known as
Campanula persicifolia Backhousei or C. p. alba grandiflora is perhaps the most

coronata alba, which has its corolla so doubled as to form what is familiarly
known as a ...
