Too many Calla Lilies

ctk16November 25, 2008

A long time ago I broke up a 5 gallon pot of calla lilies and planted them in a flower bed. For years they didn't do much, but in the last 3 years they have been growing and multiplying like crazy. There are new shoots EVERYWHERE... in my lawn, under bushes, between planter stones.

Any suggestions?

No suggestions ...I'm having a similar experience. I bought a house with some Calla lilies in one corner and suddenly they are EVERYWHERE!

I think they should be listed as an invasive.

Actually have heard that some places categorize them as a weed. They really need to be in containers to control them, I believe
