Orange Calla Lily

Availability: Out of stock

The moisture-loving Orange Calla Lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica sp.) is a fantastic perennial bulb, superb cut flower and an excellent addition to seasonal garden beds and porch pots. With bold orange-colored flowers with the classical clean modern look to them that manages to be both formal and informal at the same time!

The broad green leaves have the classic white speckles and upright growth, forming dense vertical clumps of incredible beauty! Emerging from the leaves are the trumpet-like blooms in bright orange. Actually comprised of a single petal called a spathe wrapped elegantly around a central spadix in the center.

These perennial bulbs are cold-hardy in growing zones 8 through 10 and can be treated as annuals, or tender perennials and houseplants in northern growing zones. Growing into dense clumps these tolerate wet soil and can be planted around water features and ponds for erosion control.

Planting and Application:

Orange Calla’s look divine in rows along the edge of a walkway or to define a garden border, or in groupings around a bench or sculpture to highlight it. These are prime pollinator attractors and add fiery cut flowers to bouquets and floral arrangements!

Perfect for containers and mixed-planters, even as thrillers in window boxes, Calla lights up any porch or patio. Once it gets too cold, the foliage makes these ideal houseplants and they love a fountain or water feature where the moisture is higher. Their easy care makes them bright and cheerful gift plants for any occasion!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Calla Lilies love the full sun but appreciate afternoon shade and part shade in hotter climates. Maintain a very high moisture level in the soil and ensure it does not become stagnant. Add plenty of moisture-retaining organic matter and a thick layer of mulch to the soil to maintain the water content. Some northern growers dig the bulbs and store as you would Dahlia and Elephant Ears.

  • Full Sun & Part Shade
  • High Moisture & Fertility
  • Mulch Well
  • Frost Tender Annual/Perennial Bulb Zones 8-10
