Calla Palustris-Bog Arum

Calla Palustris-Bog Arum

Calla Palustris is a single species aquatic pond plant that is native to the northern hemisphere including the UK.  Also known by the common names Bog-Arum and Marsh-Calla, It favors muddy margins and boggy conditions and can often be found growing wild at the edge of ponds, lakes, streams, ditches and in marshlands. Having attractive, heart shaped glossy green leaves, It spreads itself out on creeping runners/tubers that often float out across the water creating a rafting effect.

Bog Arums grow to a height of 25 cm and flower during the months of May. Their white, arum shaped flowers are reminiscent of Zantedeschia  Aethiopica which also has a confusing name (Calla Lilies).  Bog Arums make excellent shallow marginal pond plants and are suitable for all types of water gardens.  Growing in water that is 0-5 cm in depth,  they will provide an extra showy display of clusters of bright red flowers in the Autumn.
