Perfect Partners General Information

Calla Lilies are a popular flower for celebrations. A favorite of florists, the elegant blossoms are stunning in bridal bouquets and cut flower arrangements. An upright funnel-shaped petal swirls around a single yellow, finger-like spike in the center covered in tiny flowers. Calla Lilies are native to South Africa. All our accent annuals are guaranteed to reach you in good condition and to grow, but we can't guarantee annuals to overwinter. Will be an annual except in zones 8-10 but can be stored over the winter in colder zones. Instructions

Perfect Partners Plant Care

Hardy in zones 8-10. Calla Lilies can be left in the ground in zones 8-10 but the plants may need to be divided every few years to keep them blooming well. Plant 3-4" deep with the “eyes” (growing tips) facing up in well-drained soil about 6" apart on center. Cover with soil and water sparingly until leaves begin to appear, then you may begin watering more generously; however, do not overwater. Avoid water on top of the leaves to keep foliage as dry as possible. If growing in containers, use a quality growing mix rather than garden soil. Containers will look best planted just 4" apart. Shoots usually begin to appear in approximately 2 weeks. Fertilize with a time-release balanced fertilizer such as Osmocote® when plants start to show growth. Lift tubers in the fall in zones 3-7 after the leaves have died back or after the first frost. Trim off the foliage leaving an inch or two of the stems attached. Cure in a warm dry place for several days and then put them into a box with dry peat moss in a cool, dry basement.
