Bog Arum Overview
Calla palustris is a hardy, deciduous, rhizomatous, aquatic, perennial plant from cool temperate climates in Europe, North Asia and North America. It is commonly known by the names Bog Arum, Water Arum and Marsh Calla, amongst others. Water Arum grows in ponds and boggy land and tends to spread, making it a good marginal plant for the edges of water bodies. It grows best in full sun. The foliage is attractive and it produces small, clustered flowers, surrounded by showy white spathes. Bog Arum has been cultivated to exhibit a range of colours including black, pinks, purples, yellows, oranges and striated bicoloured forms. Historically it was used as a medicine for swelling, snakebites and soreness.
