Description

Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Pink Mist' is another highly desirable cultivar of the type species with white spathes suffused with a pale pink tinge that grows stronger and darker in and around the throat. The spadix is usually yellow, only very occasionally with a reddish tinge, but the reflected light from the pink-toned throat often gives the spadix the look of having a reddish hue. It is a subtle effect and the soft glow that emanates from this inflorescence has great charm.

Like the type species of Zantedeschia aethiopica, the 'Pink Mist' cultivar is relatively cold tolerant, losing its foliage in extended periods of sub-zero temperatures but surviving the winter as a root-hardy herbaceous perennial before recommencing growth when the weather warms up again in Spring. In milder and sheltered urban or coastal climates the leaves will often remain throughout the winter.

A choice variation on a familiar theme. Highly recommended.
