Calla Lily Plants

Blooms Turned Black

Anonymous added on July 11, 2011 | Answered

I bought a beautiful calla lily and have taken care of it regularly. However, the blooms that were a rich fushia color have turned black. The blooms are turning down and no new ones are coming out. What is the problem?

After some calla lilies bloom, they will immediately begin to go dormant for a couple of months. The rhizome goes dormant for about 90 days to restore itself and then the plant emerges once again to bloom and grow.
