Calla Lily

This is Zantedeschia aethiopica – the Calla Lily. The amazing thing is that I lost it for at least two years. It just disappeared and yet this year it has quite happily been resurrected, putting forth its lovely spotted leaves and trumpet-shaped flowers. It is in a plant pot so I can only conclude that the pot was in a location it didn’t like and so the tuber remained dormant.


  1. Hee hee! The reason it appeared is because I gave it to you earlier in the year. Unless of course you haven't planted that one yet. My yellow one is out at the moment and is also lovely.

  2. That explains why the foliage was different and the tube has red in it. I just found the photo of my earlier one and it had plain foliage and no red. I shall try not to kill this one!
