Cuckoo Pint

Arum Maculatum is now displaying its unusual flowers.
Also known as Lords and Ladies,Cuckoo Pint ,Jack in the Pulpit and even Willy lily it certainly inspires the imagination to produce so many common names.
It will later produce spikes of orange berries.
The crushed roots were once used to produce starch .
