Arrow arum is a native wetland wildflower that is found among other locations, on Alligator River & Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuges. Its white flowers are often hidden in the canopy of large heart-shaped leaves. The red fruit persists for months after it ripens. It is eaten by wood ducks and rails. Arrow arum only occurs on poorly-drained soils.
