Q. Calla Lily Rebloom

I received a pot of calla lilies last year. In the fall, I took the rhizomes out and stored them in vermiculite or something like that in a container over the winter. In March, I took them out and planted them in pots. They are now about 2′ tall, but I see no blooms yet. Am I just too early, or what is the problem?

Q. Calla Lily Care

My calla lily’s foliage is turning yellow and the stem is mushy and breaking off. It’s in full sun and well watered. What can I do to make the plant grow properly? I just transplanted it from a pot to my flower bed a week ago.

It sounds like you are overwatering them. They like to be well watered but do not like standing water. Make sure that they are not in standing water. This article may help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/calla-lily/growing-calla-lilies-and-care-of-calla-lilies.htm

Q. Green Calla Lily Blossoms

I bought a calla lily plant for Easter with beautiful white blossoms. They have since all turned green. They have curled more, and the white has progressively vanished. What have I done wrong?

This is actually more common than most people are aware. There's no need to worry about the green color. These flowers do that as they mature and begin producing seeds. You can cut them off or leave them be. As for the leaves, this could be attributed to the natural dying down of the plant foliage as it produces seeds.

Q. Calla Lily Blooms

When the blooms start to brown and green over, do you remove the whole stem from the base or do you just cut off the flower? Or what do you do? How can they bloom all year? I live in CA and mine bloom all April and part of May but sometimes I have had blooms in December before the frost.

You can remove the entire stem.
