Hercules Calla Lily
Zantedeschia aethiopica Hercules - Spotted Leaf

Family: Araceae

We offer two clones of Hercules, a plain green leaf form and a spotted leaf form. This is the form that the San Francisco Botanical Garden grows as 'Hercules' with white spotted leaves. Awesome white flowers appear in early spring on flower stalks that can grow up to 5 feet tall. It will form a large upright clump in well-drained constantly moist soil. Give partial shade. Goes somewhat dormant in summer, with active growth the rest of the year. Native to South Africa. USDA zones 7b - 10.

Note: As these are young plants, it will probably take a couple of seasons to reach flowering size. It seems that climate has a lot to do with the eventual size of calla lilies. Those grown in the San Francisco Bay area usually grow much larger than the same variety grown in Southern California.
