Bring a look of the tropics to boring borders and plain patios this summer. Elegantly curving white spathes fade to a spring green at the floral chamber, which is held up by succulent tube-like stems adorned with broad, wavy foliage. Boasting fabulous blooms and a long flowering period from May to October, this white Calla Lily is a must-have. Preferring well-drained soil in a full or half sun location, Zantedeschia are impressive additions to outdoor gardens with their distinctive funnel-shaped blossoms. They also make excellent cut flowers. We recommend accompanying the Zantedeschia Aethiopica with low-growing plants to provide filling foliage over the base areas and covering up those thin stems. Anything that provides fullness and has a shallow root system serves best - try the Astilbe for a good spread. Top quality tubers supplied. Flowers May to October. Height 90cm. 12-14cm bulbs supplied.
