Blushing leaf

What a special flourisher the 'Crystal Blush’ calla lily is! The colourful bract is the main eye-catcher. In fact, the flower itself is so small that you can barely see it. The advantage is that the plant will look good for a long time. Will you let it flourish inside first, or will you put it outside straight away?

It is best to plant the calla lily in your garden in spring. The flower blossoms between June and September. With the proper care, it will bloom year after year!

Planting

What do I need?
  • Small spade
  • Watering can
  • Potting soil
  • Hydro grains

How do I plant the calla lily?
You can leave the calla lily in the included nursery pot and put it on a dish. Of course it will look better in a decorative pot. Make sure the pot has a hole so the Zantedeschia can absorb water from the saucer.

This calla needs moist soil. That's why it is always a good idea to place the plant in a larger pot with fresh potting soil. Cover the bottom with hydro grains and fill up the pot with potting soil. While at it, water extra so the soil stays moist.

Planting the calla lily in the garden
After blooming, the calla lily can also be planted in the garden. Make sure to plant it in moist soil in the sun or semi-shade. A garden corner with fairly moist soil is ideal for your zantedeschias and will look stunning combined with hostas. The blue-green leaf hosta especially will contrast beautifully with the white inflorescences of the arum. Various colours of arum lily together in a large planter can also look quite spectacular.

Care

What do I need?
  • Watering can
  • Plant food

How do I care for the calla lily?
In summer, the calla lily needs plenty of water. The soil should remain somewhat moist all the time. Adding plant food to the irrigation water at regular intervals ensures abundant flowers. Always leave some water in the saucer during dry spells. After blooming, plant food is no longer necessary.

Calla lilies in the winter
The calla lily is not frost hardy. That's why it is a good idea to grow the Zantedeschia in a pot and to place it indoors in winter. Keep the potting soil relatively dry in winter. However, do not let the root ball dry out. Dig out bulbs planted in the garden before winter sets in. 

Extra

Did you know that the inflorescence of the arum lily is actually a bract and not a flower - what we see as a flower, actually isn't. The true flowers are tiny and sit on a yellow spadix which is surrounded by the graceful bract. Because this bract remains beautiful for a long time zantedeschia is a popular cut flower. If you want to pick one for indoors, very gently pull the whole stem from the plant. The arrow-shaped and often spotted leaves can also be used in flower arrangements. Zantedeschia is also called the calla lily.
