Dear Jason,
As far as the Zantedeschia I think this is caused by the growth hormone the bulbs are dipped in.  I call them "mutants" and they can be quite beautiful.  They do not persist, that is, the bulb that gives the mutant leaf one year has normal growth the next.
The odd inflorescence and leaves also occurs naturally, but more rarely.
At least in my yard!
