The fire-engine red cones of Red Alert Calla Lily are softly mottled with orange flecks and surround an orange spadix. Wide, spotted foliage makes a perfect foil for the flowers of this stunning cultivar. Blooming in early summer, Red Alert Calla Lily will grow in full sun, but prefers to be sheltered from afternoon sun in areas in zones 7-11. Moisture lover. Great cut flower. (Zantedeschia)

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).

Plant Information
(16-20” tall x 12-18” wide) Red Alert Calla will add something exotic and exciting to your beds, borders and containers. Its large green leaves spotted with white are fascinating in the early season. When the tender red semi-cones unfurl in mid-summer to reveal an orange spadix and mottled orange undertones, you’ll have a hard time stopping yourself from picking them for bouquets indoors. Calla Lilies are moisture lovers and appreciate a lightly shaded position that shelters them from afternoon sun. Removing the blooms after flowering (if you haven’t already cut them!) preserves the lovely foliage throughout the season, however in hot, drier climates, they may die back after flowering in preparation for winter dormancy. Try them against a water barrel, where they benefit from the splashing, near downspouts, or use them in the margins of your water feature. Striking when contrasted with variegated small grasses or Carex.
