You can find the correct spelling for the above plants on my first
Gynandriris sisyrinchium (collected in Lampedusa Is.) and Nothoscordon
inodorum (coll. in Tenerife) grow in a mediterranean climate.
The first needs a very hot and dry dormancy period in summer, the second
comes from subtop. america. - full sun. They can survive till -5/-100C
Arum italicum is hardy (till -150C) but Arum purpureospathum is not so
hardy: better not under -40C. For both dry rest period in summer. Light
