Never seen one of this colour nor with two colours! I have a plant dark purple, almost black

Yes, looks unusual. Flowering well for you.

Balcony, I had to change the name. It’s called Green Goddess, not Emerald Green. 😂

It is an unusual variety of Calla lily. My friend gave it to me a few years ago. I thought it was a form of Alocasia macrorrhiza, which is very common in California (low elevations, anyway).

Green Goddess suits it well. It's quite nice to have the more unusual.

Thanks for letting us know about the change of name - but as Shakespeare once wrote - "A rose by any other name,..." or, in this case, a Calla Lily (though it may not have scent)! 😆

While going through a group on Flickr I came across this picture which looks similar to yours, Andy!

Yes, it’s the same variety. Her plant has nicer, greener leaves.
