'White Florist' Calla Lily is the original Calla from South Africa, where it made its home in the wet soils of stream banks. Here, it's famous for its pristine, white blossoms that are taller than other callas, at up to 3'. The perfectly-fluted flowers are an essential addition to bouquets. Plant 'White Florist' in a big pot on your patio, give it plenty of water and stand back! (Zantedeschia aethiopica)

Plant Information

Common as a wildflower in South Africa, the original calla grows even along roadsides in wet spots. If you have a moist place in your garden or yard, that's perfect for this large plant. If not, put it in a big pot on the patio so you can give it plenty of water. It'll give you magnificent blooms.

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 White Florist Calla Lily:

    I planted two bulbs in their own containers outside and planted one bulb directly into the ground. I found the bulb directly planted into the garden soil had more foliage and taller blooms than the two planted into concrete, shallow urns.

    Comments about American Meadows White Florist Calla Lily:

    The first never came out. The replacement took forever to sprout. The plant looks very healthy, beautiful leaves. So it has not flower yet. A neighbor has the same and leaves it in the ground in winter! Last winter was terrible yet it bloomed, a wonder of nature. I know that next year it will be fantastic if it doesn't have the time to flower this year.

    They are beautiful. I grew up with Giant White Calla Lilies and it took me a long time to find them again. They remind me of my Grandmother and fresh baked bread.

    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).
