Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

It needs to be planted in a very well-drained sandy gritty substrate with some bone meal but little or no other water-retaining organic matter and let its roots search for the nutrients in the richer layers below while the bulb stays dry. The average British wet summer is often too wet for it and in general it should be given no more extra water than what nature provides. Zantedeschia albomaculata is also less cold-tolerant that Zantedeschia aethiopica and in most regions its bulbs will need to be lifted in the Autumn and stored completely dry ready to be planted out in the Spring once the soil has started to warm up.

 

Flowering Season

From Early Summer TO Early Autumn

If looked after and not over-watered, the blooms will appear from early summer and show through to early autumn.
