  Hardy Zantedeschia
From: James Waddick jwaddick at kc.rr.com> on 2006.06.19 at 05:54:36(14356)
Dear all;
On a bulb email list, we have had an active discussion of
hardy callas (Zantedeschia). No one in the US in Zone 5-6 has had
success with Z. aethiopica outdoors, although the closely related cv
'Green Goddess' does much better. A German grower does better with
the species grown under water all year, but this is less successful
in the US. This has raised questions.

Do any of our Aroid specialists have any comments on
hardiness of Zantedeschia in Zone 6, Zone 4 of colder?

Thanks Jim W.

I cultivated Zant. aethiopica outdoors in Poland (zone 6) through 3 years.
However, it put up leaves in June and bloomed only once. Then a cruel winter
came in 2002 and it didn't survive.

Here's the photo how it looked at the bottom of the page:
