Choose a sunny spot outside and plant your Calla Lilies 'Albomaculata' in humus rich, well-drained soil. You can improve poor soil by mixing in some compost. The roots should be set at about 10 cm deep. Zantedeschia 'Albomaculata' thrives in a rather moist soil. Always use fresh potting compost if planting in pots or window-boxes.
Combining Calla Lily with other plants
If you have a fairly moist corner in the garden, the Zantedeschia ‘Albomaculata’ looks lovely combined with the Hosta. Especially one with blue-green leaves which will contrast beautifully with the white coloured flowers of the Zantedeschia ‘Albomaculata’. Calla Lilies in different colours planted together also look great in a large planter.
Throughout the summer, water this wonderful Calla Lily 'Albomaculata' in order for the soil to remain constantly damp. For a rich flowering, we recommend adding plant food when watering. If you are growing the Calla Lilies in a pot place a saucer under the pot and always leave a layer of water during the dry periods. Do not use fertilizer after the flowering period.
Preserve Calla Lily during the winter
The Calla Lily does not tolerate frost. Therefore, we recommend keeping them in a pot over the winter. In winter water sparingly, do not let the soil dry out. In early spring as the weather gets warmer, you can water your Calla Lilies more often and place them back outside. Bring the plant indoors when there are any signs of night frost.
Did you know that the inflorescence of the arum lily largely consists of a bract? The vase-shaped white 'flower' is not really a flower. The real flowers are very small and are located on a small, light-yellow spadix. This spadix is almost completely surrounded by the elegant bract. As this bract stays pretty for a very long time, Zantedeschia albomaculata is very popular as cut flower. Do you want to pick Zantedeschia from your garden as a cut flower? Carefully pull the complete flower stem from the plant. The arrow-shaped, often dotted leaves can also be used in bouquets. The Zantedeschia is also know as calla lily.
