Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Picasso'

Zantedeschia 'Picasso' (popularly known as Canna 'Picasso') has white flowers, with deep burgundy throats. It is a medium sized plant producing many flowers each year typically in mid summer, but if you plant the tuber later it will produce them later in the year. Grow in a pot or the border, but keep it moist and provide plenty of feed and compost to encourage the maximum numbers of flowers.

It is not fully hardy in the UK and will need to be lifted in autumn, once the leaves have died back and replanted after the last frosts.
