Description

(16-26” tall x 12-18” wide) Adding drama and flair to your garden beds and containers, ‘Captain Violetta’ Calla Lily is much-used flower in professional and home arrangements. Deep green foliage is spotted with white, and emerges from spring planted rhizomes as temperatures rise in spring. In mid summer, beautiful half-cones of violet-pink unfurl around a light yellow spadix. Plant rhizomes in late spring after danger of frost has passed, and strong, white-spotted foliage will emerge as temperatures rise. Calla lilies prefer shelter from afternoon sun, which can burn the foliage. In hot climates or where beds are dry, the plant will die back and go dormant after flowering. In cooler climates, lift the rhizomes in fall and keep dry and cool in a dark basement or garage for planting out again next spring. Callas are seldom severely damaged by deer in the landscape.
