So happy to learn this name! Also known as the Calla Liy (of course) or the Arum Lily…zantedeschia is it’s proper name…and it starts with a z!

Order: Alismatales
Family: Araceae
Subfamily: Aroideae
Tribe: Zantedeschieae
Genus: Zantedeschia

This lily was growing in a garden in San Diego…and had a lot of dirt on the petals…instead of removing it, I smudged it out with a smudge tool in Elements, resulting in a painterly effect. Background was darkened and also smudged out. This flower was exactly the colors shown, the light on the yellow was amazing.
