Looking Good: Zantedeschia aethiopica

Looking Good: Zantedeschia aethiopica

The rain we’ve had this week has been especially welcome for this week’s featured plant, Zantedeschia aethiopica, or as it’s more commonly known, the arum lily.

It’s a very popular plant, which works well as a water plant in an aquatic basket, or in the moist soil near a pond or stream. The leaves are bright green, glossy, arrow-shaped and large, growing up to 40cm (16in) long. The trademark white flower heads make superb, cut flowers and are a wedding bouquet favourite.

We have a selection of Zantedeschias in 1-, 2- or 3-litre pots, ranging from £4-£9.
