This tall elegant calla lily (zantedeschia) caught my attention the other day. I had forgot that we put them in this spot last spring, although the beautiful sword shaped leaves where there all summer in the dappled shade. They grow quite easily in our area as long as they are in a shady spot that doesn't dry out too much. The tall flowers are wonderful for cutting and bloom in the early spring for a few months. They are actually a tuber, but I have always planted them from one gallon pots which you can pick up anywhere. They send up lots of babies and can fill in damp shady spots quickly.
Although calla lilies were associated with death during the early part of last century, they have recently come into their own for what they are, a lovely, elegant bloom. My beautiful daughter-in-law carried a bunch of them for her wedding bouquet a few years ago.
