  Green Zantedeschia
From: Paul Tyerman tyerman at dynamite.com.au> on 2000.10.14 at 10:28:03(5549)
Howdy All,

Is there a known form of green Zantedeschia? I know of Green Goddess as a
form of Z. aethopica, but a friend has just brought into flower an almost
pure grren Zant, around the size of the yellow species (i.e a LOT smaller
than Green Goddess). The flower is exactly the same colour as the leaves,
seems to be furled more tightly than a spathe usually is, and has a small
white area at the base when pulled fully open. The spadix is very short
and pale yellow.

Does this ring any bells to anyone? Has two flowers out so far, both exactly
the same.

Cheers.

Paul,

Did you watch the flowers develop? Many Zantedeschia have inflorescences
that match

Ray,

This is the colour of the flower, not the effect as the flower ages.
According to the owner she thought all along that it was just a leaf and
then suddenly realised that it was a flower instead. Then the second
flower emerged and matched it. Exactly the same colour as the leaf. Has
never been any other colour. The spadix in the one I opened out was still
fresh, rather than aged or setting seed. Still had pollen on it, so it
certainly wasn't an "old" flower.

I have no way of accessing either of the documents that you mentioned, nor
would I know where to look.

The plot thickens eh?

Cheers.

Paul,

You should be able to get copies of the articles I referenced from the
Botanical Society of South Africa at Kirstenbosch. Their E-mail address
