Candleflower Review by Daryl - Jonesville, FL
Posted on 2015-05-19 14:07:04

Nice plants all corms grew into plants and made it through the winter. Leaves came up dark and glossy. Only one has bloomed yet. It was a bit of a disappointment because the flower was white rather than spotted. very strange. waiting for the orange candycorn to form.

I've had these plants for a few years. Each year they seem to surprise me with the different stages. Make sure you plant these flowers where you can see them every day or you will miss them going though the different stages.

Great plant Review by CarolJoy Madsen - Wabash, IN

I read all the reviews. For the people who had problems don't for get you can get replacements free. No reason not to rebuy them. Mine do great. this year they rebloomed 2 times. I have them under evergreens and they seem to move as the trees grow. I'll use the powder soap as one person wrote. Must be in shade. Have had them for 5 or more years. Great plant.

Amazing Flower! Review by Rhonda - Marshalltown, IA

This was my VERY favorite flower in Colorado. We recently moved to Iowa where I am planning to feature these incredible flowers again. The leaves are gorgeous and the flowers are truly show stoppers! They spread and are beautiful all season. One tip: sprinkle a little powdered soap into the paper-like encasement when the flowers are forming to keep the earwigs at bay.

Candle flower Review by Sara - elliston, VA

This plant never dies but only produced the candle for two years, but I have it in full sun. I am going to move it to shade this year and try it, I have had it for four years now. it was stunningly beautiful when the candle was on it.

This rose did great the first year, second year will be amazing. I had to move it the end of the summer, it still is going strong. Great plant specimen.

The Orange Candleflower (Arum italicum) has a new look each season! In spring, arrow-shaped leaves that emerge, then wither away as calla-like blooms appear in early summer. Attractive foliage emerges once again to complement orange, green, and yellow berries as the season ends. The Orange Candleflower is best planted in late spring to summer, in rich soil with ample moisture. Candleflowers flourish in full sun to partial shade exposure in zones 4-9. This unique plant produces larger leaves when planted in partial shaded site. A showstopper in shades of white to violet and bright orange berries, this plant will be the envy of all your friends and neighbors!
