The Italians have it

Those in the know will realise the Italians have always been bigger and better than the Brits.

There’s a very peculiar family of plants called the Arums. Lords and Ladies or Cuckoo Pint – Arum maculatum – as it is sometimes called is one member of the family. It can be quite common within the woodlands of Norfolk and can litter the floor of our deciduous forests with their 35cm tall tumbler like plants.

There is however an Arum which can only rarely be found within Norfolk; more common on the continent ‘Italian Lords and Ladies’ – Arum italicum – stands head and shoulders above maculatum growing up to double the size. It appears the Italians produce not only football teams that are bigger and stronger.
