I'm an Arum fan as well. This looks very similar to the wild calla that is found in the wild where I live now. These are from more tropical climes, I presume. with the name aethopica? Interesting that they look identical.

Lori - it comes from South Africa. The variety 'Crowborough' is supposed to be the hardiest here in the UK

Andrew: It's hardy enough to be "naturalized" in your garden? or will you keep it potted and store it over winter?

We have to protect it from the worst frosts but it should take an average winter in the milder parts of the UK

Seems I would have to treat it as I do the Callas. I store the corms over winter in a cool basement room.
