Growing Callas: Ever since Katherine Hepburn whispered, "The Calla Lilies are in bloom again," in one of her old films (Stage Door, 1937), American gardeners have thought of them as special. They are always a romantic favorite, particularly exquisite in arrangements. Callas are native to South Africa, and today they're not only easy to grow, but available in a literal rainbow of colors.

The common white one is Zantedeschia aethiopica, and like all callas, it's hardy in the US only in Zone 8 and above. This means these are 'tender bulbs' in most of the country, and have to be lifted and stored in fall. Many people grow callas in patio pots, and the pots can be brought in before frost.

Most of the very colorful callas are a separate species, C. rehmannii, and these have more narrow leaves than the classic white type. If you haven't grown callas, you may be surprised that these bulbs create a sizable plant. Sometimes the clumps grow 36' high. Most all callas have pointed or heart-shaped foliage that's dark green spattered with white spots. The bulbs are irregular, sort of like ginger roots, and several can be planted in the same pot. They enjoy being root-bound. If you plant your bulbs in spring, you'll have flowers in about 65 days.

    Comments about American Meadows Calla Lily Bulbs Salsa Mix:

    One of the set of Calla Lilly's that I ordered did not germinate. I emailed and was sent a replacement set. Unfortunately, they were not the Salsa set. I was extremely pleased with your service however. The replacement set germinated just fine. I love the Calla Lillies are just beautiful, I have been getting them for a couple of years now. I plant them in planters outside.

            I love Calla Lilies, I have grown them in the past. Was so successful last year. I have planted the bulbs, but have yet to see any sign that they have started growing. I am hoping they do.

                          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                          Find Your Planting Zone:
