Calla lily



Not to be outdone by gladiolus, calla lily also made her presence known. The first one to bloom  has greenish yellow spathe .Finally my dream come true, it’s been a long time since I’ve been looking for calla lily, very difficult to get hold of seasonal tuber. These calla lilies were planted in late March. I plant 5 varieties of tuber in a big pot: Lucifer, black star and mixed tuber. The pot is kept under shade and exposed to 2 hour of morning sun daily. Ideally calla need longer sun exposure to encourage it to bloom and to have deeper colour of spathe. However knowing how erratic my sister is as far as watering my potted plant, i do not dare to take the risk; a live plant with less flower  is better than dead one :-))

  1. I love Calla Lilies. I just came in from my morning watering and found my first Calla Lily breaking through the soil. Your lilies made my morning with their bright spots on the foliage.
