Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Green Goddess'
Common Name: Calla Lily Family: Araceae (The Arum Family)

Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Green Goddess'
Zoom In Photo:

Big, bold, deep green arrow shaped foliage to three to four feet gives rise to tall stems with white calla lily flowers with their tips dipped in rich green as if the garden gnomes had been out the night before using them as paint brushes! A unique flower effect. 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.
