Description

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 Zantesdeschia aethipica, and like all callas, it's hardy in the US only in Zone 7 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.

          Planted these in my landscape garden and they are just beautiful! They don't take the hot heat real well, and do better with some shade, if planted in the South!

                Comments about American Meadows Calla Lily Bulbs Samba Mix:

                These bulbs were easy to plant and sprouted/bloomed quickly with minimal care. However, the colors are nowhere near what was advertised, and one of the bulbs was a dud (never sprouted). Will not buy again.
