Plant Information

Growing Callas: Callas are native to South Africa, and today they're not only easy to grow, but available in a literal rainbow of colors. Their fluted blooms and refined foliage make them a favorite for floral arrangements, but they also lend a sense of elegance to the landscape. Callas do best when sited in dappled or bright, yet indirect sunlight.

The common white one* is Zantedeschia aethiopica, and like all callas, it's hardy in the US only in Zones 8 through 10. This makes callas 'tender bulbs' in most of the country, and they'll have to be lifted out of the ground and stored indoors come fall. Zantedeschia aethiopica prefers moist soil and can even thrive when sited along stream banks and water features. Many people grow callas in patio pots, which can be brought in before frost arrives.

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 70-112 days.

    Comments about American Meadows Super Gem Calla Lily:

    Ok I put this in here because I have these. See photo I live in Cincinnati, OH and my Mother's house sits Front to N and Back to S. I put these in Moms flowerbed in back on the SE side of the deck on the East side of the step railing in between the railing and Big Hosta for protection with these conditions. 3 Bulbs in each hole 5 to 6 in deep covered with 2 to 3 in mulch. Morning and early Afternoon Sun from about 10 a.m. to about 2:30 p.m. I fertilized these with Osmocote Slow Release Fertilizer in March or April and let nature water them in unless its a dry Spring. I started these in Pots they grew but no blooms and I just transferred the whole thing into the ground the following Spring after Mother's Day. The first year I got very little and I didn't fertilize. The second year last year I got this see Pic. Mind you these were Bulbs that were forced Bloomed for Valentines Day. I treated these like Tulip Bulbs let them finish blooming, turn yellow, stopped watering, dry out, placed in bag with peat moss soil and planted the following Spring in June. In hot weather and when getting started always water in the morning...

        I put these in planters and I did not get any blooms. I got the green foliage to come out but there was no beautiful blooms. I was really hoping to use them as cut flowers.

            Q & A

            Plant With These:

            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).
