I have had the large white calla lily but it was not as tall as this one.

My local nursery was selling these. They said they were sent these bulbs no name. So they could not tell me a name. They had maroon color blooms and yellow. I picked this one because it is just getting ready to bloom so I will have a surprise bloom color.

It is about 4 ft tall.

Cinta, I have a big, spotted Calla like that from Evan. It has the large white flowers of the traditional large Calla. Darned if I remember the name and the tag is long gone, so I'll give him a shout out. @eclayne ?

I had the white one a long time ago too. My white was tall but not this tall probably because of my climate.

I had never seen the giant callas with other color blooms.

That is 'White Giant' Elaine. All the giants I know are cvs. of Z. aethiopica. There are light pink spathes or white streaked with red and I haven't located any here in the states. I'm not aware of any red or yellow giants. Your plants may be something new Cinta. Can't wait to see.

@eclayne the ones that were blooming were bright yellow and another that was blooming was maroon and yellow throat. They were really pretty a good price for 10 bucks so I see if they winter as easy as my short ones.
