Calla Lilies

Zone Ottawa, On area | lililover added on August 13, 2012 | Answered

I planted 3 calla lilies this spring and one died, another is dying, so that leaves a 3rd. The problem is the leaves start to turn brown and then the bulb goes mushy. It is in sun and the drainage is excellent, but this is still happening. Can you please help me as I don't want to lose the 3rd lily too. The leaves on the second lily are just starting to brown, can I still save it?

Thanks
