Zantedeschia aethiopica 'White Giant'
Common Name: Calla Lily Family: Araceae (The Arum Family)

Zantedeschia aethiopica 'White Giant'
Zoom In Photo:

This fantastic, imposing, giant selection of Z. aethiopica features five foot clumps of white-speckled, ruffled arrow-shaped leaves topped by seven foot tall flower stems carrying the classic white boot-shaped calla flower. For full sun and moist soils. Green until hard frosts. Mulch with fallen leaves - pack leaves around the perimetre and right into the centre of the plant to protect the crowns in winter. Calla lilies can be slow to bulk up in the garden so investing in a larger size is a good idea.
