The Q&A Archives: Winter Groundcover

Question: I recently read about a groundcover that comes up in fall, providing a beautiful winter accent. All I can remember is that the name included the word "Italian." Thank you!

Answer: My guess is that you read about Italian Arum (Arum italicum). The plant is dormant in the summer time, and the leaves emerge in the fall. They are followed by white-flowered stalks and striking red berries. They do best in a shady woodland environment.
