Zantedeschia ‘Edge of Night’ (‘Black Star’)
The dramatic richly colored 3″ flowers resemble black velvet and add a new dimension to this popular group of plants. Black edges outline the glossy green, silver-flecked leaves and provide the perfect backdrop for the floral display. 'Edge of Night' has a multitude of uses including mixed containers and garden plantings. In colder regions of the country, 'Edge of Night' can also be moved indoors for winter-long enjoyment.
