Zantedeschia 'Captain Safari'


Zantedeschia 'Captain Safari' (Zantedeschia aethiopica (Arum lily))

This is its third year - I'm so pleased it survives the winter in the greenhouse!

beautiful Barbara

lovely colour, I've got leaves in a pot, still waiting for a flower LOL

14 Jul, 2010

 

I did some research before editing it and found it to be an Zantedeschia aethiopica so Arum Spritz?

14 Jul, 2010

 

Oh dear - you know me and common names - I can never remember! :-(( I suppose it must be an Arum.....??

14 Jul, 2010

 

I have just googled ' Zantedeschia 'Captain Safari' is it an arum' and it comes up Arum so unless someone knows better?

14 Jul, 2010

 

I think it is too............thanks for doing that, Denise!

youre very welcome Spritz

Lovely, I saw a lovely delicate Zantedeschia in a garden the other day called Kiwi Blush, a very pale pink.

14 Jul, 2010

 

I have two new ones in the greenhouse - one is supposed to be pink, and the other pale yellow. I hope they flower soon!

This Kiwi Blush was a big clump growing outside. But, Cornwall ~~

Haha. I put my pots outside for the summer, but in they go again in the autumn! Outside? I don't think so!!!

15 Jul, 2010

 

I love the colour of this!

19 Jul, 2010

 

Good, isn't it - I had two cormy things sent to me (free) three years ago with an order from one of the plug-plant companies - and this is one of them - they are both the same.

I'm still waiting for the two new ones to flower - I do hope they oblige!

Is it in front of Photinia? You are so good at colour matching B....I am picking up lots of tips from looking at your pics. I find Red Robin such a difficult plant to match up with!

20 Jul, 2010

 

Yes - well spotted! I put the pot in front of one with 'Little Red Robin' and some rather nice begonias with deep orange/white small flowers...

Thank you for that lovely compliment, Karen. :-)))))

You're welcome!

Just ordered some more plants from Gardening Express...I know, you're not a fan! Couldn't resist having another Pink Cassini, and there is a lovely variegated Pyracanthus too. Also a new winter flowering Clematis that is supposed to be hardy, and a climbing rose called Ginger something....(I am taking Zephirine out..It is covered with mildew and I don't much care for the colour, wanted something warmer for my planned 'hot spot' I was telling you about). A Cornus Florida with the lovely salmon pink bracts to replace my morello Cherry which has never thrived. Now I'm all spent up.....again!! lol....oh well! what else is a Visa card for? :))

20 Jul, 2010

 

was it Ginger Syllabub Karen? that's a beautiful rose ;-)

21 Jul, 2010

 

Oh wow! That's some order! Mind you - I'm planning a make-over of a bed in the front garden - it has a v.v.v. large Cistus in it and it's not attractive unless it's in flower. I don't like it in the middle of the bed as a 'specimen' plant all year round. Shame about Zepherine Drouhin - she doesn't get mildew here, and I love her. Still - if you need a different colour, go for it! :-))

21 Jul, 2010

 

Yes, Ginger Syllabub Grindle! I was looking for something 'warm' but not 'orange' and GS fits the bill beautifully!

Barbara, I read 'after' planting ZD that it is one of the most mildew prone roses around so I sprayed it......didn't make any difference, and actually although it is one of the most popular roses ever grown, I don't much like it!! That piercing deep pink is not for me! Looking forward to seeing your newly developed bed!

21 Jul, 2010

 

I'm glad my Zepherine doesn't get mildew! I love her, and her scent.

No new bed yet awhile. I met Louise at our GC, and we looked at roses, but 'the one' wasn't there. ;-(( I did get three Lavender plants and two Geranium 'Jolly Bee' to wind through them, though. That's part of 'the plan'. :-)))

21 Jul, 2010

 

Nice!!

21 Jul, 2010

 

interesting to read about ZD, I've just planted it, so I'll watch to see how it does, I have enough trouble with black spot, so if it doesn't do well, it's definitely out.
I love GS, it's such a pretty rose, bought one for a friend, now I'll have to get myself one LOL

22 Jul, 2010

 

Don't know that one....I'll have to take a look when Karen's is in flower.

22 Jul, 2010

 

As my white Arum grows outdoors & is doing very well with lots of lilies on it (I have three separate large plants), I am thinking that this lovely one might grow well outdoors here also. Will check for it in the GCs I visit. Mine get totally neglected, but now that they are in flower, I think they are beautiful.

Your white one is probably Z. aethiopica 'Crowborough', Dwyllis. That's the only one that's hardy in the UK. I have to start my other Arums in the greenhouse and move them out in the summer, in pots, then back under glass for the volder months. I hope in your different climate that you can keep yours outside, but they don't appreciate any cold weather.
