Which calla has the pretty speckled leaves?

It's one of the white varieties, right?

I have grown the pink and purple ones and have been unimpressed. Only one dinky flower per bulb (if that), and way too many plain uninteresting leaves. I saved the corms but they will not get a prime place in my pots this year; I may just stuff them into the garden. Though I'm wondering if performance is a function of size. These corms were 1" max, but grew a lot over the summer, and were clusters when I dug them up.

If I am not going to get many flowers, I want to at least have pretty leaves to look at!

Zantedeschia albomaculata. I grow hundreds of them and I've even started them from seed (takes 2-3 years.) It's a pretty sturdy variety, but not cold hardy in your zone.

Thanks!

I would treat them as tender bulbs: digging them up and storing in the fall.
