Zantedeschia Aethiopica – Arum Lily
Zantedeschia aethiopica, commonly known as the calla lily or arum lily, is a perennial herbaceous plant native to South Africa. It is renowned for its elegant, trumpet-shaped white flowers, often mistaken for the actual flower, which is a modified leaf called a spathe. The true flowers are small and clustered on a central stalk called a spadix, surrounded by the conspicuous spathe.
The calla lily is characterized by its lush, dark green, arrow-shaped leaves that grow on long stalks. This plant is typically found in wetlands or alongside streams, showcasing its preference for moist, well-drained soil. It is a popular choice for ornamental gardens and floral arrangements due to its striking and sophisticated appearance. With its graceful form and enduring beauty, Zantedeschia aethiopica is a favourite in both indoor and outdoor settings, adding a touch of elegance to various landscapes.
