    How do I plant the calla lily?
    You can leave the calla lily in the included nursery pot and put it on a dish. Of course it will look better in a decorative pot. Make sure the pot has a hole so the Zantedeschia can absorb water from the saucer.

    This calla needs moist soil. That's why it is always a good idea to place the plant in a larger pot with fresh potting soil. Cover the bottom with hydro grains and fill up the pot with potting soil. While at it, water extra so the soil stays moist.

    Planting the calla lily in the garden
    After blooming, the calla lily can also be planted in the garden. Make sure to plant it in moist soil in the sun or semi-shade.
    A garden corner with fairly moist soil is ideal for your zantedeschias and will look stunning combined with hostas. The blue-green leaf hosta especially will contrast beautifully with the white inflorescences of the arum. Various colours of arum lily together in a large planter can also look quite spectacular.

    How do I care for the calla lily?
    In summer, the calla lily needs plenty of water. The soil should remain somewhat moist all the time. Adding plant food to the irrigation water at regular intervals ensures abundant flowers. Always leave some water in the saucer during dry spells. After blooming, plant food is no longer necessary.

    Calla lilies in the winter
    The calla lily is not frost hardy. That's why it is a good idea to grow the Zantedeschia in a pot and to place it indoors in winter. Keep the potting soil relatively dry in winter. However, do not let the root ball dry out. Dig out bulbs planted in the garden before winter sets in.

  • Specifics
  • Did you know that the Calla Lilies flowers are actually leaves? The vase-shaped 'flower' is not actually a flower. The true flowers are tiny and sit on a small, pale yellow spadix. This spadix is almost completely surrounded by the decorative leaves. Since its wonderful leaves last so long, Calla Lilies are very popular as cut flowers. Would you like to pick some Calla Lilies from your garden? Slowly pull out the entire flower stalk from the plant. The arrow-shaped, often spotted leaves can be used in flower arrangements.
    Zantedeschia is classified under the family of Araceae.
