A very prolific blooming South African Zantedeschia that usually flowers from mid summer through to the first heavy frosts which could be any time from October through to December depending on our winter and the area. If they are kept frost free they can flower at pretty much anytime of year. The pink blushed spathes are around 7cm across on 40 to 50cm tall stems rising above the green, semi-erect sword shaped leaves.
They are proving to be reliably hardy in warmer parts of the UK if given a well drained but humus rich soil and a protected spot with full sun. Water regularly when actively growing but during the colder months the rhizomes should be kept on the drier side while dormant. The rhizomes seem to be happily capable of surviving outdoor temperatures of about -6c as long as they are planted deep (about 10cm below soil surface level) and given a thick winter mulch.
In colder areas lift the bulbs after the foliage has been cut back by the first frosts and store in a dark, cool but frost free place packed in moss peat.. If growing in a pot either bring under heated glass and continue to grow them through the winter months or just place the pot in a frost free shed or garage and allow the plants to go dormant. Move back outside in mid spring and resume watering as soon as new growth appears.
Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot.
