Q.I Bought Calla Lilies A Few Weeks Ago And They Had Blooms But Are Now Turning Yellow; Are They In Shock Or Something Else; It Is O
nly May and they shouldn’t be going into dormancy yet? Are the plants in shock or do they need something else. I live in Dallas and the weather has been cool but warming into the 80s. The flowers have had a good amount of water, whT I’m I doing wrong?

Yes, this is to be expected. You can avoid some of the shock by making sure not to disturb the roots in any way.
While the plant is in bloom, any disturbance to the root zone will usually result in a loss of blooms. This is to re-route energy to develop new roots and repair injured roots.
Other than that- The plant looks healthy.
