Description 

Calla Lily ‘Nashville’ (Zantedeschia ‘Nashville’) is an elegant bi-colored flower; its sculptural petals have creamy-yellow centers that blend with violet-magenta,  spathe that produces that produces 3-25 inflorescences per tuber. The inflorescence stems are about 35 cm in height, and the leaves are dark green with whitish spots and have a leathery texture.

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

Calla Lilies are dramatic additions to outdoor gardens with their distinctive funnel-shaped blossoms, but also make excellent cut flowers
