Arum lilies make striking architectural plants with large, glossy foliage which, in late spring and early summer, is joined by large, white, hood-shaped flowers. These are popular for cutting. The plants look best grown beside water, in shallow pond margins or a bog garden, where they associate well with other water plants. They can also be grown in damp borders with other moisture lovers. In cold regions or when early flowers are wanted for cutting, grow in large pots of rich compost in an unheated or frost-free greenhouse. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their Award of Garden Merit.
