Planting and Application:

Calla Lily is great along borders, in masses, and in container gardens too! Tall and high-impact color on compact clumps, they keep themselves neat and tidy! These perennial blooms prefer being planted among later emerging perennials and shrubs to shade the foliage while the bulbs take their summer dormancy in hot climates.

Captain Fuego Calla Lilies add drama and lush color in mixed plantings. Calla Lilies are great stand-alone 'thrillers' to include in your containers and planters on your porch, balcony, or patio. Add elegance to front door plantings and in the ground by your front steps to greet you and your guests! Use these clusters of greenery as edging and fillers throughout the pollinator garden and cut flower beds since they look fantastic even after the blooms are done for the year!

  • Lavish Orangy-Apricot Color
  • Unique, Cup-Shaped Blooms
  • Tropical Flair For Any Space
  • Sword-Like Clumps of White Speckled Green Leaves
  • Eye-Catching Container Plants, Borders & Edging

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Calla Lilies thrive in the full sun, and can tolerate a bit of shade! Plant in enriched, well-drained and organic-rich soil. Provide consistent, moderate moisture throughout the growing season. Deadhead the blooms as they face, and once the foliage of these perennial bulbs yellows, trim it back the foliage. Northern growers can use these rhizomes as annual accents or even bring them indoors as houseplants. Warm growing zones can use these as perennials.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Well Drained Rich Soil
  • Prefers Consistent Moisture
  • Prune After Foliage Yellows
  • Perennial in Warm Climates & Annuals in Cooler

Lush yet subtle elegant blooms of the Captain Fuego Calla Lily are going to be your newest favorite perennial bulbs! Hurry and order yours at and your bulbs will ship to your growing zone at the appropriate planting time!
