    Features

    Consider me FLOWER therapy.

    This hot pink Calla lily is the perfect antidote to a dreary mood. 

    Calla lilies are an elegant addition to your garden or home where they prefer a sunny window with good air circulation.

    The Be My® series will bloom for 6 to 8 weeks in your garden or as a potted plant indoors. The spathe (what we call the flower) can persist for up to 12 weeks and mature into richer colors as it ages. If grown in pots, keeping the plant pot bound will encourage more blooms. Calla Lilies make long lasting cut flowers as well.

    Deadheading Not Necessary

    Uses Notes: 

    Use in Containers and Landscapes or indoors as a potted plant. These types of plants are often purchased as gifts for others or as for personal use. The plants will last for months with good color and the flowers will be colorful for weeks as well, either while still on the plant or when used as cut flowers.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Although Calla lilies may look delicate and are always elegant, they are relatively durable and easy to grow. When first planted the soil should remain moist, once they are established they are happy with moist, but will also tolerate quite a bit of water. 

    A dose of controlled or slow-release fertilizer can be helpful. 

    While summer blooming is expected with spring planting, if they are planted later in the season, they will bloom later. Planted late enough they will bloom in Fall.

    The part of the plant we call a flowers is actually called a spathe. The Spathe can persist on the plant for long periods looking really beautiful. However, if they do become unsightly you can remove them by snapping the stem.
