Aethiopica Calla Lily

This cool white variety flowers over many weeks, is wonderfully scented, has beautiful leaves and is a handsome plant in beds or containers. Definitely a winner and one that may be planted in the fall for a jump start on next year’s garden.

Although not considered true lilies, the calla lily is an extraordinary flower. This beautiful plant, available in a multitude of colors, grows from rhizomes and is ideal for use in beds and borders. You can also grow calla lilies in containers, either outdoors or in a sunny window as houseplants.

Become your own florist and SAVE! You can grow Calla Lilies in any zone. Here is a quick and basic how to and (See Page Chart):

Zones 3 to 6:

1.) Dig or remove from the containers in the Autumn 2.) Remove excess dirt or potting mix 3.) Store indoors in a cool dry place for 1.5 to 2 months 4.) Plant in a container indoors with plenty of sunlight 4.) Move outdoors once all frost or extreme weather is past.

Zones 5 to 11:

Cold winter areas in these zones: Same as above if your zone has heavy freezing weather during the winter. Warmer winter climate zones; Plant 2 inches deep outdoors in the Spring or Fall in a dry or very well drained area (Callas prefer dry growing conditions). In zones with heavy rainfall during the winter, remove and store indoors. Otherwise, you can leave your Callas in the ground over winter.

Growing calla lilies is easy and calla lilies care is minimal at best. Choosing to grow calla lilies in the garden or as houseplants is a great way to add color to any area.
