Calla lily produces beautiful flowers. It likes warm weather and soil as you have discovered. With a cool spring in some parts of the US, soil doesn't warm up and the bulbs languish. Now that it is warmer, the tubers will probably poke through soon. A tuber the size of a golf ball may have spent its energy in sending up the initial leaves when frost hit. A larger tuber has enough stored energy to send up more leaves. Tubers should be set just under the soil. Calla lilies require soil that is kept moist.
