We selected this extremely vigorous and stunning new calla from a batch of South African seedlings. Instead of having green foliage as is typical in Zantedeschia aethiopica, Zantedeschia 'Whipped Cream' has large green leaves that are heavily spotted with large white dots... like blue jeans after a bad day of painting. For us, it tries to grow all winter, but is finally cut down by temperatures below 12 degrees F. In spring, the leaves burst forth again, topped in late spring with stunningly beautiful, pure white, funnel-like flowers. For us, the flowering ceases in midsummer, but resumes again in September and continues until frost. While Zantedeschia 'Whipped Cream' prefers moist sites, it performs quite well in all but the driest of garden spots.
