1 Zantedeschia (Calla) Plant (2Lts Pot) with buds or coming into flower
Zantedeschia Memories brings a new dimension to the elusive concept of black flowers. Not only is the flower black, but the breeders have achieved a remarkably dark nuance in the rest of the plant. It has purple/black shaded green leaves and dark purple/black stems. This is very unusually in Zantedeschia and does not exist in any of the 7 or 8 species. It has black flowers of a moderate size and a medium growth habit. This is a timely innovation in the Zantedeschia world and this makes this variety very special.
Shortlisted for Chelsea plant of the year 2014, Zantedeschia Memories has been named in memory of CNB Zantedeschia specialist Rein Wijnker who passed away in May 2012.
The coloured Zantedeschia (Calla) varieties we supply have been chosen both for their vibrancy in colour but also their suitability for growing in containers in the UK.
The coloured Zantedeschia do not like to be too wet, meaning they are best grown in containers on sunny patios in free draining compost. They are quite drought tolerant and are much happier kept on the drier side. They can go outside once all the risk of frost has passed.
We recommend gently potting on into a free draining compost to get the best out of you plant
