Ok, trying yet another site to see if someone can help me. This looks like the Green Goddess Cally Lily but there is a difference. Having no luck in finding out if there is hybrids.

Hi Lynn123, Welcome!

I dont' see white spots on the leaves of Calla Lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Green Goddess')

I wonder if your lovely plant might be White Spotted leaf Calla Lily (Zantedeschia albomaculata)

Hopefully others more familiar with Calla will be along to offer suggestions soon.

OK here is where I'm having problem. If look at the (spathe) then you'll notice that there is also a large white leaf with the green on it. It's two pieces, I haven't seen one with that kind of leaf that wraps around it

Very interesting plant. Both the leaves and the spathe look incorrect for a Z. aethiopica like 'Green Goddess'. Is there a purple blotch at the bottom of the inside of the spathe where the spadix emerges? Various mutations, including two spathes, or oddities due to growth regulators aren't uncommon with callas. I'd also expect to see lobes on the leaves if this were a Z. aethiopica.

Thumbs up I wanted to comment on it's beautiful features. Specked leaves, Green Goddess colored & double spathe. It has the best of 2 varieties plus the unique extra spathe! How did you get it? Did you buy it with a name or get it another way like a bulb or in a trade? Let us know how it behaves in the future. It's quite interesting & I love it. Lovey dubby
