Zantedeschia anthiopica


By Siris

Zantedeschia anthiopica (Zantedeschia aethiopica (Arum lily))

More flowers on the clump than I've seen before, must be due to the very wet winter. Growing in 'not a bog' Border.

Amy, I thought the black ones weren't hardy?

Its survived 3 years Sue ,I brought it with me when we moved .. I must go and look to see if its even growing ....

Do let me know, I've always shied away from putting semi hardy plant in the borders. Our local florist sold them as hardy!
