From planting, Calla Lily bulbs will take 50-70 days to flower. Plant your Calla Lilies to create blocks of bright colour in the garden.
Plant your Calla Lilies in humus rich, moist, well drained soils. Calla Lilies need to be kept moist when in active growth, especially over the summer flowering period. If they are allowed to dry out they will become dormant and remain so until next season. In cool climates Calla Lilies will naturally become dormant over winter. In warmer climates, if kept moist, they will remain evergreen with spot flowering year round. In cool climates, grow in a full sun to semi shade position. In warmer zones they are best in part shade.
Calla Lilies are suitable for growing in pots. Ensure you keep the pots moist during active growth and add plenty of fertiliser to keep them blooming at their best.
Calla Lilies make excellent cut flowers and last weeks in a vase. Sumo Calla Lilies can be divided early if you want to spread the colour around, you will find instructions in our growing guide for this.
