Dear Susan,
Yes, a variety and a plant can survive many many years. e.g. TBV (Tulip Breaking Virus) infected so much tulips in Netherland. Zommerschoon is the oldest TBV infected variety. In Hortus Bulborum (in Limmen) they keep this plant for many years now. First it was described about 1620. And today the tulips are well.

If you google Zantedeschia virus you will find lots of information.  Mosaic virus seems to be a a well known virus.

I'm not sure if the odd inflorescence in your photo is from a virus, it is so commonly seen.  Sometimes one inflor. is odd, but all the others on the plant are OK.  Doesn't a virus mean a plant is unhealthy?  If a plant has a virus, can it (the plant) survive through several dormancies?

Sypthoms: reduced tuber growth, spathe distortion, leaf mosaic, wavy leaf, rounder leafshape (Z. rehmannii) and increased offset production. The sympthomes are not allways visible sometimes only one or two of them on a plant.
