Description

Zantedeschia aethiopica is a wonderful, well known outdoor flowering Calla Lily that is sometimes also known fondly as the White Arum Lily. It has lush-looking dark green leaves with an arrow head shape. The size varies according to the amount of shade.

Calla Lily aethiopica - 3-foot-tall and 2-foot-wide plant has gorgeous white flowers up to 10 inches long that surround a creamy yellow finger like centerpiece . It blooms from late May through to June, coupled with waxy green foliage.

The flowers of Zantedeschia aethiopica are faintly scented and this attracts various crawling insects and bees which are responsible for pollinating the flowers.

Environment

Calla Lily is mostly found by lakes in moist soils, therefore prefers well-drained soil in a full or half sun location. Callas grow best in a moist, well drained soil that has been enriched with compost and other organic matter.
Fertilize monthly with a good all-purpose fertilizer when actively growing.

When they are grown in pots, Calla Lilies should be kept constantly wet and should be given a weak solution of liquid plant food every 3 weeks while they are showing signs of new growth.

Remove the flowers when they begin to fade. When the plant has finished blooming, allow the foliage to mature and gradually reduce watering until the leaves have all died back.

The plant can be accompanied with low-growing plants to provide filling foliage over the base areas and covering up those thin stems. Anything that provides fullness and has a shallow root system serves best as a Calla companion, such as New Guinea Impatiens, Astilbes or Hydrangeas

Landscape Use

Looks superb grown in groups within the flower bed and border, or equally as effective planted and grown on the patio in pots or containers

Properly preparing the soil for bulb planting is essential! Good soil drainage is essential for planting bulbs. If your soil has a lot of clay content, consider adding a bit of coco peat. Consider your sunlight requirements based not he type of bulb you have chosen to go with. Some plants might be happy in a semi shade environment under a tree whereas someone might require full sunlight.

The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant two to three times as deep as the bulbs is tall. This means most large bulbs like tulips or daffodils will be planted about 8 inches deep while smaller bulbs will be planted 3-4 inches deep. Planting depth is measured from the bottom of the bulb.
