Q.Calla Lily Plants, Picasso Variety

blumab added on July 6, 2011 | Answered

I live in western PA and I purchased two gorgeous Calla Lily plants called Picasso. The interior color of the flower is violet. I planted them outside where they get morning sun. I am getting lots of flowers but they are remaining greenish. They aren’t getting bright white flowers as they had when I bought them. Why are the flowers green? Are they not geting enough sunlight?

They may need more light or it may be that they flowers have not aged enough. Calla flowers normally start off green, or with a green tinge but will lose the green as the flower matures.
