Growing Calla Lily

Anonymous added on July 10, 2011 | Answered

My lily plants are in the ground (sandy soil). They are very lush and are good specimens, except for the color of the flowers. The color should be purple, but only the inside of the flower is purple. The outside is as green as the stem and doesn't unfold fully. There aren't many blooms either. What is the problem? Do moles eat their rhizomes or roots? Please help!

Calla lilies' flowers normally start out green and will gain color as the flower ages. This is normal. If you have not read it, this article will help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/calla-lily/make-calla-lily-bloom.htm
