Calla Lily in Bloom

Zantedeschia hybrid.

These bulbs grew foliage but did not bloom last summer. I let them go dry in fall, kept them inside in the pots and resumed watering in late winter.

I decided they were too pot-bound and too many to keep watered, so I planted them among Gardenias on the north side of the greenhouse.

I had only grown Zantedeschia aethiopica in the past, pig lilies that love a bog. These like well-drained sandy soil, or so I read. I can provide that. I read that they form seeds too. That sounds marvelous to someone like me.

It's that time of year when we start watching for Summer Bulbs A to Z. I can hardly wait for the Agapanthus bud to open on a seedling.
