This was, ummmm, "borrowed" from my in-law's neighbor's garden. Actually I was admiring my brother-in-law's new plant and he asked if I wanted one. I said sure, and the next thing you know, he marched to his elderly neighbor's home, pulled up a few bulbs and said "here ya go!" (He assured me she gave him permission, but we left pretty quick after that, just to be safe.)

Anyway, the splotchy foliage kind of threw me for a loop. The plant is 20-24" high. Can anyone give me specifics? Or correct me if it's not a calla lily at all? thanks in advance...

Thanks, CC :) I'm thinking/guessing it's Z. albomaculata, also known as "Spotted Calla Lily" - it seems to fit the descriptions I found.

But if anyone disagrees, just holler - I've posted it in the PDB, but I'll be glad to move it wherever it should be.
