    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
  • You may not know, but what is generally thought of as the arum lily flower it is actually a funnel-shaped spathe and not strictly a flower. The actual blooms are tiny – you can see them on a small, pale yellow spadix which is almost totally surrounded by the elegant spathe. As this spathe stays attractive for a long time, the Zantedeschia ‘Garnet Glow’ is exceptional as a cut flower. Both the arum lily and the calla lily are called Zantedeschia.
    Zantedeschia in a bouquet
    If picking Zantedeschia as a cut flower, you must remove the whole flower stem carefully from the plant. The arrow-shaped and often speckled leaves look great in a bouquet too.
