Zantedeschia albomaculata

(Hook.) Baill. 1880

It is native to the South African countries. There are 2 subspecies: Z. a . albomaculata and Z. a. macrocarpa.
I got it as Z. albomaculata, but there are no white spots on its leaves.


The juvenile leaves were hastate.


The spathe is white, dark violet inside.
The male part of the inflorescence was very short when it bloomed for the first time.
The adult leaves are sagittate, all green.


The tubers are small comparing to the other species, in 2010 the largest one was 6 cm long.
The infructescences are big and thick, that's why the name macrocarpa.
