Calla Lily

Calla Lily

Zantedeschia, commonly Calla Arum or simply Calla Lily, is a stemless herbaceous perennial of the arum family whose flowers and leaves rise to 1.5’ tall from underground tuberous rhizomes.

Easily grown in average, consistently moist, well-draining soil in full sun to part shade. Best growth and flowering in full sun with regular fertilization. Hardy in Zones 8-10. May be grown in a container or planted directly in the garden. In colder climates, the rhizomes can be dug before the first frost and kept indoors in a cool, dark place, similar to cannas and other tender, tropical bulbs.
