Used a lot in wedding flowers, this majestic Calla showcases plum purple spathes with wide ivory lips, standing atop juicy tube-like stems and surrounded by broad, wavy foliage. Native to the hot and humid climates of South Africa, the Calla Lily is mostly found by lakes in moist soils, therefore prefers well-drained soil in a full or half sun location. Calla Lilies are dramatic additions to outdoor gardens with their distinctive funnel-shaped blossoms, but also make excellent cut flowers. We recommend accompanying them with low-growing plants to provide filling foliage over the base areas and covering up those thin stems. How about growing in a pot with something scented to form a treat for the senses. Try planting Vermeer with the colour co-ordinated Lavender, or Freesia for a wider variety of colour. 16cm+Tubers supplied. Flowers May to October. Height 40-45cm.
