How Do I Know When My Calla Lily Is Done Blooming for the Year

Anonymous added on September 6, 2011 | Answered

How do I know that my calla lily is done growing for the year? After all the blooms are gone, can I cut the leaves off my calla lily? Why does it look like a seed pod growing in my bloom after it has bloomed for a while and the weight of it causes my flowers to bend?

Once the blooms have all faded and are replaced with seed pods, then the plants are normally done for the season. You can cut the spent blooms right after flowering, unless you want to save the seeds. Since the seed pods naturally weigh down the stems, they will bend over to the ground. Cutting the spent blooms or seed pods will prevent this.
