Pam’s Arum’s

I wrote a short note about my friend Pam Harper, who passed away last week, but wanted to share a little more. Below are a couple of her amazing selections of Arum italicum, that she shared through the years. The top is Arum italicum ‘Pamela Harper’, was one of her seedlings that former NY nurserywoman, Ellen Hornig, named in her honor.

The one below is a selection that Pam named, Arum italicum ‘Ringlets’. It’s hard to show how amazing it is in a photograph, but this is my feeble attempt. We have yet to divide our original clump, but that will probably happen soon.

Pam’s son, Nick also shared a couple of videos, so those of you who didn’t know Pam or have the chance to visit her garden can get a better of picture of this amazing woman. The first is a YouTube of her garden, and the second is her appearance on the former television show, Gardener’s Diary.

Remember that Nick is looking for a gardener to purchase her amazing home and garden. He can be reached at ndharper69@btinternet.com We hope you’ll help us spread the word about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

  1. Hi,
    Will Arum italica ‘Pam Harper’ ever be available commercially? It is beautiful.

    Have to say, I am touched by how much you appreciate your fellow “plantspersons” (Woke speak for plantsmen) and the accolades you share about them. I really enjoy reading about these amazing professionals and am blown away by the degree of knowledge you all freely share with one another. But also by the deep appreciation for these individuals and your long-time relationships.

    It is heartwarming to bear witness to all this. So nice to read. Thanks for sharing.

    Mary
