  Re: [aroid-l] colorful leaves or spathe of some other inflorescence?

I purchased this Calla last year....See:
for what it looks like for me. My plant does not have the purple
stems like the Park's picture.

As for the leaves that also have the flower color in them...... I have seen
Calla lilies send up deformed spathes that were more leaf than flower.
So I would say the folks at Park's Seed Co. probably have a field
full of this species and they just picked a few deformed leaves to
add to the vase of flowers to make a more tempting picture.

Just my 2 cents worth,
