Unfortunately, there isn't enough information for me to answer. Are they in the ground, in containers, is the soil consistently moist, how long ago did you plant them??? If you transplanted them less than a week ago, you are probably seeing transplant stress, not something you did wrong. During this time, keep them in the shade and move them to full sun gradually when they look better. If these are in the ground, create some shade for them. Use a box, a leaf bag over a shovel or cloth tied to sticks to block afternoon sun under they look better. Where you live also affects calla lily performance. My sister in the Pacific NW has calla that go dormant during their dry summers. I'm in Michigan and mine are beautiful all summer if I keep them watered. The classic white calla with dark green leaves go grow well in wet, soggy soil. Other varieties need moist soil that isn't soggy. Here is more info. Note that the sidebar on the right has links to further calla topics.
