What Do You Do With Calla Lilies After Bloom?

My garden has many calla lilies, and I would like to know what to do after they bloom (e. g. , most bulbs’ greenery should not be cut back until brown). Should callas be cut back to ground–and when, etc. Many thanks. mbg

You can cut them back to the ground after the leaves have turned yellow. Until then, they need the leaves to help them store energy for their next blooming cycle.
