Bog arum (Calla palustris) is a good marginal plant for softening edges of ponds. This native plant has minute greenish flowers on its main spike but is enclosed by a spectacular white spathe from May to August, with clusters of red berries (toxic to young children) from August to November. Its scent attracts an abundance of wetland flies and beetles. Full sun or half shade. Can be propagated by division of the rhizome.
