Commonly called the mouse tail Arum this little plant readily increases beneath humus rich soil. It sends up dense clusters of shiny green leaves . The tiny brown backed white flowers are hidden amongst the leaves. The spathe tip is extended into long thin tails, hence the name - it looks as if tiny mice have dived head first into the foliage!
