I have seen this query several of times in my emails... I don't know if t=hey are
requesting a Zantedeschia... so I refer them to
They have
Zantedeschia hybrids 'Black Magic'

Zantedeschia hybrids 'Black Eyed Beauty'

I checked my emails... they were requesting "Black Forset Calla"

The greenhouse I work in sells Black Forest callas every spring. The bloo=ms are not a true black, but they are a nice, deep, bruisy purple colour.=We're out of them now (actually we're out of all our callas now) but I d=on't imagine it would be too hard to order them from various sources.

Dear Plantsmen,
Can anyone help here?

The Bulb Forum of International Bulb Society has received the fol=lowing
from Gretchen Wms. Jurek.
"I have not been able to find another of these black callas to plant! At
another house we lived in for ten years, a bulb's leaves appeared one day=,
for the first time in that location, and the thing later showed as a BLAC=K
CALLA LILY!  Stunning!  I adored it.  But when we moved, I left it, of
course - one is supposed to
leave plants.  Well, I have been forever sorry, let me tell you!  I have
looked all over since 1986, and on the 'Net since 1996, to find
another  bulb - to no avail.  Do you have any ideas about where I can loo=k
now?  Maybe it was just a strange mistake, and they don't exist
commercially... I  have found out that  technically they aren't a calla,
but a different name... but that has not helped.  I would be uncontrollab=ly
happy if you could point me the right way, Bill."
Kind regards, Joyce Miller
