We are in mid Zone 6.  We have a planting of hybrid Zantedeschias on the
SE side of the house, in an area enclosed by a stone wall.  We mulch
them in the fall.  They survive year to year, and always have some
flowers, but sometimes the losses
are high.  The same hybrids in the open garden have never survived.  I
would rate them borderline Zone 6-7 with a mulch.
