Aechmea recurvata recurvata

Aechmea recurvata 
Another near-hardy bromeliad – definitely hardy to a few degrees below zero, planted in a very free-drained bed as you would Fascicularia, or mounted on a branch or wall as an epiphyte. 
Aechmea recurvata
The small rosettes are green and produce dense stemless inflorescences of vivid pink and purple, surrounded by red tinted leaves.

Arum creticum Marmaris White

Arum creticum Marmaris White
A good white flowered form of this hardy and prolific species, with relatively long narrow spathes. 
Arum creticum Marmaris White
For sun and good drainage with shelter. As easy to grow as its relatives and especially nice in a situation on the sun-ward side under the edge of an evergreen shrub
