It's hard to say much more than "WOW" when you see African Gold Calla Lily. This incredible selection of the South African Zantedeschia aethiopica has green leaves with golden striped veins. In spring, the clump is topped with 2' tall spikes ending in white chalice-like flowers...what a combination. Zantedeschia aethiopica is a winter-growing species, so is dormant in hot climates, re-emerging in early fall, and remaining evergreen all winter in milder climates. In climates with cold winters, plants in the ground usually start flowering in early spring. The intensity of the leaf pattern is best in early spring, fading somewhat in the heat of summer.
