Arums obtained as concinnum Mt.Ida (bottom) and sp. Crete
A couple of interesting species from the garden here - neither of them correctly named when I got them and both a bit obscure. 

Arum sp. obtained as 'concinnum Mt.Ida' (Mount Ida is in Crete) It has large leaves with well defined pale markings and a scattering of black spots and huge spathes - up to nearly 1ft tall, are pale and marked with maroon lines. 
Arum concinnatum Mt.Ida
A hardy and prolific plant.

Arum aff.  concinnatum Crete
Arum sp. Crete - possibly a new species according to Peter Boyce. This is a smaller, less prolific plant than the above, with plain green leaves, cream spadices, and pale spathes, touched lightly with brown. Seems to be easy and adaptable.
