Zantedeschia 'Captain Murano' is a 2010 release from Holland's Kapiteyn Breeding...the producers of the extensive Captain® Series of callas. Zantedeschia 'Captain Murano' produces white specked green leaves that serve as a foil for the 18" tall flower spikes in late spring. The flower spikes are then topped with pitchers (spathes) that are hot pink on top with an orange base, contrasted by a yellow spadix...seriously psychedelic! In the garden, slightly moist soils and part sun produce the best results. In climates north of Zone 7b, they can be lifted in fall and stored in peat moss during winter, where they should be kept just above freezing.
