Buy Zantedeschia aethiopica arum lily: Stunning, imposing plant for moist soil

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, reliably moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    One of the hardier forms, it is suitable for naturalising in milder climates, and may retain its foliage throughout the winter. It is however for its pure white flowers, which are produced in succession from late spring, that it is most highly prized.

  • Garden care: Plant the tubers 7-10cm deep and 30cm apart into rich soil or good quality potting compost. Water sparingly until new shoots start to emerge and then start to water more regularly. Apply a deep mulch in autumn.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant

Easy to grorw


Surprisingly super easy to grow. They come as rhizomes that you place in a zip bag, add some water then place in the airing cupboard for a few days. Mine sprouted within days and have large leaves already after 2 weeks. Zantedeschia aethiopica is the hardiest of the Arum Lily and are hardy to -10C. Beautiful pure white flowers in late summer. Mine grow well in my clay soil mixed with compost as I do not have boggy areas to grow it. As long as it is kept watered in summer it is fine. Would certainly advise to add to any garden.
