Zantedeschia, Worth A Try!

Zantedeschia, Worth A Try!

They have been flowering so beautifully in both my front garden and the FLUWEL trial gardens that I just had to share this with you.

The Zantedeschia is more commonly known as the ‘Calla Lily.’ This modern tuber has been through a huge metamorphosis in the past couple of years. She is originally from South Africa and as old as the road to Rome, but ten years ago, she suddenly made a comeback and became very trendy.

A few flower bulb growers saw real potential in the Zantedeschia as a cutting flower and as a potted plant, and they started breeding on a large scale. It had very good results: I have never seen a bulb nor a tuber of any kind make this kind of progress in such a short amount of time.

In the few years that followed, hybridizers and growers were able to create an amount of colors that had never even existed in the Zantedeschia realm before. You can literally make a rainbow out of Zantedeschia’s now, as you may have seen me doing on the picture of my house above this newsletter, or, if you follow me on Facebook, on my personal page.

The tubers of the Zantedeschia can be ordered again on the first of March in the Fluwel web shop, but if you are in the neighborhood of Burgervlotbrug, I would highly recommend stopping by at the Fluwel trial gardens to see them bloom in real life. It’s worth your while, because the Dahlia’s are also starting to make their appearance these days. If you are excited to try the Zantedeschia’s in your garden next year, make sure to read the instuctions under Flower Bulb Information on our website before you get started. If you follow these, you are guaranteed to have succes in your garden when it comes to our Zantedeschia’s.
