Zantedeschia aethiopica, Arum Lily

Zantedeschia aethiopica
  Arum Lily
One of the garden escapes in my district is the South African Arum Lily. It grows beside streams which meander through lush pasture grazed by herds of Friesian dairy cattle. At the moment it is is full flower and will continue to be in bloom for most of Winter.
2017 update: I have limited stock available of the dwarf form.


  1. Ian, your posts on South African flowers are all so interesting and informative. Can you show Protea, which, I believe is their national flower?
