Arum Lily (Calla) Mixed - Tuber
Fabulous cup-shaped flowers
Plant your Calla Lilies in humus-rich, well-drained soil in an area with complete sunshine. You can prepare the soil by adding in some compost. Plant the tubers approximately 10 cm deep. Calla Lilies prefer to grow in moist soil, so always use fresh potting compost when planting in flower pots and planters.Calla Lilies make great combination plants
In a corner of the garden that has relatively moist soil, this mix of Calla Lilies combines well with Hostas. The blue-green leaves of the hostas will contrast beautifully with the flowers of the Calla Lilies.
Did you know that the Calla Lilies flowers are actually leaves? The vase-shaped 'flower' is not actually a flower. The true flowers are tiny and sit on a small, pale yellow spadix. This spadix is almost completely surrounded by the decorative leaves. Since its wonderful leaves last so long, Calla Lilies are very popular as cut flowers. Would you like to pick some Calla Lilies from your garden? Slowly pull out the entire flower stalk from the plant. The arrow-shaped, often spotted leaves look wonderful used in flower arrangements.
Water this wonderful mix of Calla Lilies in the summer keeping the ground constantly moist. For a rich flowering, we recommend adding plant food when watering. Place a saucer under the plant pot and always leave water in it for dry periods. Do not fertilize during the flowering period.Calla Lilies can be preserved during the winter
Calla Lilies are not frost tolerant. Therefore, we recommend over winter to grow them in a pot. Keep the potting compost fairly dry during the winter, but do not let the compost dry out completely. As the weather gets warmer, you can water your Calla Lilies more often and place them back outside for spring. Bring the lilies indoors as soon as there are any signs of night frost.
