Zantedeschia are a genus of flowering plants within the Araceae family, native to South Africa. They are most commonly known as Arum or Calla Lilies. These plants have been documented as far back as the Ancient Roman period and were a symbol of celebration. They were also used to mark the passage of the winter solstice, planted outside of homes to give the effect of bringing light indoors during the darkest of days. The genus was named after Professor Giovanni Zantedeschi, (1773-1846), an Italian physician and botanist.
Zantedeschia are deciduous or semi-evergreen tuberous perennials that can be split into two forms. Outdoor varieties are often called Arum lilies where tender forms are typically known as Calla lilies. Care and planting instructions differ depending on their species. Most varieties display large, glossy lance-shaped leaves which bend and curl in attractive undulating waves. Flowers will form a large and erect spadix alongside an elegant hooded spathe.
