I have 'wild' calla lily's growing in the yard and bought some colored ones last year and this year. I am somewhat surprised by Amer. meadows descriptions that say Calla's bloom only from mid-summer until frost. Also, that they require full sun.

Unless I have magical bulbs, my wild ones are presently blooming and have tended to bloom almost year round. And some are in the darkest sections of the yard and get ZERO sun.

Is this because I live in San Francisco and the weather is so mild? I bought the colored ones because I love near year round color in my plants (just not white!) and wonder if the ones I bought are NOT going to bloom in Spring and fall?

have never had much luck with callas. Do fine the first year then decline when summer comes see beautiful ones in zones 8/9 in florida There are several different families of callas and have been hyvbridized so really tough to figure the ancestry. You should have good luck with them since you avoid the high summer temps and cold winter temps . i can't grow "ANYTHING except palm trees in full sun Most write ups on plants are for temperate areas ?? I love aroids but for me anthuriums do mauch better than callas Good luck gary
