Product Information

This pure white form of Calla lily (also sometimes called the Arum Lily) is most highly prized for its crisp, pure white flowers which are produced in succession from late spring. Newly formed blooms have a greenish tint to them before opening up magically to reveal their pristine funnel-shaped spathes of bloom. A real showstopper!

Despite its popularity, its rarely offered as a plant for sale online, so now is your chance to get one of these beauties for yourself and you'll be rewarded with tremendous displays of ice-white flowers that last for 5-6 weeks and appear again year after year.

A semi-evergreen perennial, the White Arum has long-stalked, erect leaves which are arrow-shaped and glossy green. Growing up to 40cm in length, they're an architectural feature in their own right and compliment perfectly the white trumpets, each sporting a distinct yellow spadix (the central spike).

Although essentially a marginal pond plant, Zantedeschia can easily be treated as a perennial if given a thick mulch over winter to protect its underground rhizomes and will eventually develop into a striking clump. If you prefer, this is a great plant for a large container, which can be moved undercover out of the worst of the winter cold.

Awarded the sought-after RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that Zantedeschia aethiopica has been trialled to ensure that it performs reliably in UK gardens.

Supplied as an established plant in an 11cm pot, ready to be planted out or potted up into a container. - Note plants are dormant October - March so may show no leaves in the pot.

Top Tips

Keep the soil moist when in full growth, pots will sit in an inch or so of water. Over winter, reduce water but do not allow the soil to dry out.

Care Information

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • Individually knock out the plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out lightly. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the football.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil.
  • In spring, water sparingly until new shoots start to emerge and then start to water more regularly.
  • Over winter, protect the crown from frost by covering the plant with a bubble wrap or fleece jacket filled with straw. Leaves will die right back in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.
  • If grown in a pond, grow in planting baskets filled with aquatic compost in water up to 30cm deep, in full sun. Protect overwintering plants by placing baskets in a frost-free environment.
  • If growing in a pot, grow in a soil-based compost keeping just moist in winter. pots can either be moved under cover or covered in bubble wrap if in a sheltered area.
  • Protect flowering plants from wind which can damage the blooms.
