Dear Susan,

Thank you for your response on that. I will try a seach on Arum aethiopica Crowborough. Interesting thought on
varieties and growing conditions. Crowborough probably is Z. aethiopica with a survival nick name tacked to it. I hadn't thought of that. It's pretty well understood that if you want a particular plant to succeed in a particular climate, get a plant that had it's beginnings in that particular climate. So in this case, Z. aethiopica may have acclimated to Crowborough's climate plus happened to be in a perfect situation for survival. It would be interesting to know how wide spread the survival of Z. aethiopica was in Europe the year Crowborough survived. At any rate, thanks for your response.
