Description

It would be really difficult to keep a herd of wild zebra in your garden, and most of us don’t have the space for a large chess set. Yet there’s something classy and striking about the combination of black and white that will attract attention in your summer garden. The Calla Lily 'Zebra' collection will provide that attraction when the simple but stylistic black or white modified leaves unfurl in such a way as to give the impression of being blooms. Plant this collection en masse so the chess game can get underway, or so a herd of zebra can appear to be grazing on the large green leaves beneath them, which are spotted with white.

Gracy's gardening tip
"Some Calla Lily varieties (like this Zebra collection) come with an attractive white dotted foliage, giving them even more flair!"
