Dear Arpoid L;
Thisd sounds like Z. aethiopica which I grew for years in Zone 5/6
where it multiplied went toseed self sowed etc.
It grew without protection, but was planted near a sidewalk which
probably help conserve some heat.

Most likely, Zantedeschia albo-maculata. It has a well-defined dormancy and
surprisingly hardy. Unlike its big semi-aquatic kin Z. aethiopica it won't
tolerate poor drainage but it's otherwise an easy plant.

See if the "white petal" (the spathe) isn't purplish down in the throat
near the base.
