Zantedeschia is a genus containing around 8 species of herbaceous, perennial flowering plants, native to southern and East Africa. Members of this genus are popular for its striking, upright, spathe around a solitary, finger-like spadix. A number of hybrids have been developed, that fall in two main groups: Elliottiana hybrids, which usually have dotted leaves and yellow spathes and golden yellow spadices, and Rehmannii hybrids, which have unspotted leaves and white-pink or dark purple spathes, surrounding yellow spadices. Depending on the species, members of this genus can be grown in containers or flower borders/beds in a variety of garden styles, with the species Z. aethiopica often being cultivated as a marginal aquatic plant.
