Mix it up! A good mixture of displayed and surprise colours. A great, economical way to experiment with these fabulous flowers.
Calla Lilies put on a spectacular summer show with multiple blooms from each tuber. They are the chic plants you want in your garden, with fancy foliage and daring spathes they add that something special. They also make excellent cut flowers and will last a couple of weeks in a vase.
You can plant your Calla Lilies in clumps, swathes, beds or even pots – they can look good anywhere. From planting; the bulbs will take two to four months to flower (faster in warmer weather). The decorative foliage has a light covering of ornamental white spots.
Calla Lilies grow well in humus rich, moist, well drained soil. They need to be kept watered during the heat of summer, as if they dry out they will go dormant and you won’t see them again until next season. A full sun to part shade location is where they want to be, keeping in mind warmer climates require a morning sun/part shade position. It is best to wait until the threat of frost has passed before planting out.
You can add fertiliser monthly to your Calla Lilies during growth to get the most out of your flowering season. In warmer zones Calla Lilies have the potential to flower year round, just keep them well fed and moist to achieve this.
