Candleflower Help (Arum italicum)
I have 4 candleflowers in 4 different places. I can never get them to produce anything but leaves. This year, however, one of them finally shot up a flower...a very weak flower. But the leaves got all curly like it was dying. This one is in a lot of sun. So, I watered it quite a bit. The leaves would come back, but then shortly after they'd curl up again. They didn't actually look like they were being singed by the sun, though.
I thought about moving it to a more shady spot, but now I'm stuck for an answer:
1.) This plant in the sun is the ONLY one that produces anything but leaves (and they all came from the same place and were all planted at the same time...about 3-4 years ago). The other 3's leaves are fine and add nice attractive foliage, but produce nothing but leaves.
2.) It acts like a vampire in the sun...like the sun is evil and it's just trying to curl up and get away.
3.) The internet is no help. Everywhere I look it says shade, light shade, sun...so that doesn't help me.
Does anyone else have these and do well with them? Any suggestions?
