Zantedeschia Captain Odeon

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Characterised by rich, amber-orange flowers, Zantedeschia ‘Captain Odeon’ resemble the warm glow of a flaming torch. Illuminating your garden with vibrant, hot colour, these eye-catching blooms add tropical flair to patio planters, conservatories and greenhouse displays. Glossy, verdant leaves create a lush backdrop, with the spade-shaped foliage flecked with white. Native to marshy areas of South Africa, Zantedeschia relish moist, rich soils, and are ideal for heavier soils where other bulbs may struggle. This tender variety will need some protection from frost and can be lifted and overwintered indoors. The cheerful, radiant blooms make fantastic cut flowers for bold floral arrangements and bouquets.

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
