In late spring the stately white calla, or white arum, lily produces its golden, clubshaped spadix surrounded by a pure white spathe.
The tall stem stands above the large, shiny, dark green arrowhead-shaped leaves, which are strongly veined and arise on long leafstalks directly from the rhizome.
Many varieties have been developed that are more compact and free-flowering than the species. ‘Childsiana’ is a compact form. ‘Green Goddess’ has white spathes tipped and streaked with green; those of‘Little
Suzie’ are tinged with pink. Zantedeschia rehmannii has slender pink spathes and long leaves, and Z. elliotiana has extremely large, lush, dark green leaves spotted with white, and golden yellow spathes.
