Zantedeschia aethiopica   Altar-lily

Zantedeschia aethiopica Zantedeschia aethiopica bud

This plant was growing happily on some dark waste land near our hotel. It is a South African plant which can easily survive in the warmer Mediterranean climate and is found here and there in the wild in the U.K. and in Western Australia as well.
