Black arum lily
Striking and exotic, this sensational Calla lily has deep satiny purple-black flowers. Grows into magnificent clumps of lush green foliage with strong, waxy leaves, spotted with white. Excellent for borders and general garden planting in sheltered positions; protect from frost in winter. Or can be featured in patio planters and overwintered in a greenhouse or conservatory where the foliage normally remains evergreen. Also make a great house plant. Requires well drained soil, and bulbs must be kept dry in winter. Height 30 to 60 cm.
