Zantedeschia Mercedes

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Like a bowl of ripe, juicy fruit, the spathes of Zantedeschia ‘Mercedes’ unfurl in a shade of mango-orange, fading gradually through apricot to soft peach. This variety brings a splash of luscious, tropical colour to your garden, putting on an impressive show throughout the summer months. Each flower is held upright with the distinctive, hooded Calla Lily shape, enhanced by lush, jungle-like foliage. Zantedeschia enjoy moist, rich soils, flourishing as a marginal aquatic and in well-watered containers. Overwinter these tender perennials in a frost-free location for an even bigger and better performance next year.

Care Guide

Most varieties of Zantedeschia grow best in a conservatory or greenhouse in sun or part shade. 

Plant rhizomes 8-10cm deep in a container filled with good quality, free-draining multi-purpose compost.  Provide consistent watering, ensuring the soil stays moderately moist to maintain lush growth of your calla lilies.

Plants can be gradually hardened off in late spring and enjoyed outdoors in a sunny spot for the warm summer months.

Once flowers start to appear, feed plants every 3 weeks with high-potash liquid fertiliser.

These frost-tender perennials must be brought back indoors before temperatures drop in autumn and protected from freezing temperatures.

Zantedeschia Aethiopica is the only fully hardy member of the family which may be grown outdoors all year round
