This is a shade loving plant I bought a number of years ago, and it comes back every spring, then has whitish tulip like blooms in August. It never gets much bigger. I'm thinking about starting a grouping of these in this area, and wondering what the name of this plant is. Anybody know?

Could be a Calla Lilly, or an Arum Itallicum.

looks like some kind of pathos variation or an arrowhead variation , like a previous poster said . Now I have an arrowhead growing inside my house that I took from my cousins yard in florida and it grows beautifully as a house plant up here in ohio .

Looks like a mini-cala lily to me......they are a bulb and the leaves die off and resprout during late spring.... Different bulbs can produce yellow, pinkish, purplish, brownish and white flowers......

I have Callas, but the plant that looks very similar to the OP's that I have does not flower at all. Any ideas?

I'm thinking calla lily, too. That seems to ring a bell with me. When it blooms, I'll post another photo. Thanks for all of your responses.

It's calla lily....I have some just like it. I bought the spotted-leaved variety on purpose, 'cause I like 'em. Mine have never bloomed well, though....I don't think I have them in the right spot. I thought they were a shade plant, but some things I've read said they liked full sun! So I don't know where I should put them. I do know they're not happy where they are and I need to move them.
