Arum Lily

Arum Lily, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

In South Africa the common name of this plant is Arum Lily, whereas it is known as a Calla Lily in most of North America. I've come to think of it as Arum Lily, which is a more accurate description of the plant because it belongs to the Arum family.

It grows with great exuberance along the roadsides in South Africa wherever there is a bit of moisture in the ground. It always brings a smile to my face and fond memories to mind when I see this plant in bloom.
