The genus Arum consists of 25 species of tuberous plants. 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.
