The common name ‘Mouse Plant’ refers to the flowers that are produced among the foliage – they give the appearance of a mouse diving for cover through the leaves, with the tail following on behind!
Arisarum proboscidium spreads via small rhizomes, eventually forming a creeping colony of tiny arum-shaped leaves. The flowers are produced in April / May, and the whole plant enters dormancy by mid / late summer. A perfect ground cover and fully hardy. Grow in light shade to full sun.
