Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Crowborough'


Availability : Available

Description :

An English-bred, free-flowering, sturdy arum lilly.

Arum lilies are popular architectural plants with gardeners and florists for their superb lanceolate leaves and large white flowers with light yellow spadices. This English cultivar, Zantedeschia 'Crowborough', is better suited to our climes and is an evergreen perennial in mild conditions. It can reach 1 metre in height. Flowers from early June to the end of July.

And it can add a surprisingly exotic touch to your garden! It goes well planted as a marginal near water with hints of green and is very elegant in the company of the giants, such as Gunnera, Rodgersia or Astilboides.

Grow in good, fertile garden soil that is always moist in summer. Sun (not too hot) or slight shade. Can be grown as an aquatic (-30 cm).

Grows well in a large planter on a shady patio that is kept moist in summer. A good cut flower for arrangements.


  • in continental climates, apply bracken mulch (and cover with plastic in damp, snowy conditions)/
  • Grown in pots it needs to be overwintered in a cold frame (cut back to 10 cm and stop watering until it starts growing again the following March-April).
