Q.Calla Lily – Color of Blooms

aggie added on April 10, 2011 | Answered

When I purchased my potted calla lily, it had pastel color blooms. Now it has dark red blooms. How can I change the color back to the pastel hue? What kind of fertilizer should I use?

Some calla lilies blossoms darken (and also some lighten) as they age. There is no way to get back the pastel color other than wait for the flowers to bloom again next year, when it will go through the same process.
