abc wed Z for "Zantedeschia aethiopica", Zingiberales



"Zantedeschia aethiopica", calla lilies

 Zingiberales  Ginger family.

marantaceace,re" Calathea Warscewiczii  wild ginger. Calathea warscewiczii also produces showy cone-like inflorescences. The bracts that cover the cone are creamy white in colour when they first emerge and they gradually turn to yellow and take on a pinkish hue with time. They are spirally arranged around the cone and the rims of these bracts fold over the edge, which make the entire cone looks somewhat like a rose flower when viewed from the top!
