Many bulb and alpine enthusiasts grow a couple of species of Arum, usually the showy A. creticum and A. dioscoridis- and the widespread A. maculatum is well known. There are, however, many species which are practically unknown except to a few enthusiasts, and it is one of the aims of this book to bring these attractive and interesting species to the attention of a wider audience. Building on recent cultivation, pollen, cytology and chemistry research, this reference work should increase understanding of this genus.
