Angelo, I find the pink form of Zantedeschia aethopic (sold here under 'Marshmallow' and another name, although as far as I know they are the same thing) a complete disappointment to me too. While the straight species (i.e the normal white) flowers very well here and various times of the year, the pink form rarely ever flowers. I am lucky if I get a flower or two each year, despite it being in 2 separate areas and treated similarly to the species. It has slowly started to clump, but not much and it has leaves above the ground far less than the straight species. I am assuming that my form is probably the same as yours, just sold under different names in different countries. Cheers. Paul T.
