How exciting to find the flowers of Arum palaestinum in bloom, at first I saw the two flowers tucked in amongst the foliage and back-lit by the morning sun; the effect was a glowing ruby-red. Later that day I was able to photograph the same blooms evenly lit and with the foliage held back to reveal the extraordinary structure of the flowers. This is a plant that I grew from seed some years ago and only saw a single bloom last year, and so I'm thrilled to see it continue to thrive.
