Looking Zantedeschia/calla lilly

You would think this would be an easy plant to find . . .

I'm looking for *colored* calla lillies -- especially the very dark maroon colored ones. I'm having a difficult time finding a source on the web. I found a company in Oregon and I know that Brent and Beckys will eventually have them (their 04 catalog isn't online yet).

Anyone have other sources?

Thanx

k. van bougondien was offering "black forest" a deep purple-black variety as well as other colored forms. they are wholesale but probablly would accept a minamum order of 50.00--they were selling 6 bulbs of that variety for 49.50 anyway in their 2002 catalog. check out www.kvbwholesale.com and see what might be available.

If you go down to your WalMart today, you're in for a big surprise ... tah dah (sung to the tune of Teddybear's Picnic).

Picked up three kinds of coloured calla rhizomes here in Texas yesterday. Check your WalMart out. I now have flame, an orange/red with speckled leaves, the dark lavendar purple, and a pinkish white. They also had yellow and white. All at $2.79 x 2 rhizomes if memory serves me correctly.

Thank you SowthEfrikan,you're right, Wallmart has loads, and I *also* found some at (of all places) Costco! Dark maroon -- not quite black, and not quite red, but pretty.

Thanx again.

Glad you found them, I like them also. For some wierd, inexplicable reason, even though they originate from home, I never seem to think of them as South African plants.
