As a retired trade journalist, now left to my own garden, in Preston, UK, I still attend trade events. The Four Oaks,(UK) show this month, had two stands displaying Zantedeschia, both offerings grown in Holland. What a fantastic species this is, however not initially easily grown - for the amateur. The indications are it has a very strict requirement of compost plus precise overall conditions. Given that, the huge plate like corms, produce a fantastic display, apparently whilst expensive , the lenthy flowering exhibition, must be worth it. I intend to acquire at least one as soon as possible. South Africa is the original country of development, but surprisingly, the reports suggest it is happy in Europe. As to cold/wet NW UK thats a gamble. - surprisingly one of the exhibitors is to be located in our area. No ! I'm not connected in anyway commercially. This plant with its amazing display, must be a winner. It is a Royal Horticulture Society Gold Award winner. Just think, a corn the size of plate, flat underneath, with 7-8 volcano like protrusions on top, from where, when the plant erupts into life - Given the very special conditions!. A bouquet emerges. Two distinct types, the ones we saw, had a superb range of different colors, bred for the trade.
Sorry currently I have not a plant or picture.

This is a lot hardier than stated on most lists.

It does fine in our 7b winters with no extra protection, just an eastern exposure. My mom had these when I was growing up and they came back every year, bigger and better. I have some of my own and, poor things, they're growing in broken-down mulch on top of black plastic. Not even an inch deep. I'm amazed. I never expected anything less, and they haven't let me down in five years. I did however, just pot them up. They are in the way of the hose pipe and I finally took pity.

My pink calla grows and spreads in part shade. Some blooms are greenish, but most are pink. They are in a garden sheltered from our prevailing winds. We are the border of zones 6 and 7.
