Planting Instructions
  • Dig a hole at least twice as deep and twice as wide as each dormant bulb. Each hole should be large enough to allow the bulb to be covered with 4" to 6" of soil. Place the bulb in the hole with the pointed end facing up, then cover the bulb with soil. Firm the soil gently with your hands and water thoroughly.

Continuing Care
  • Adequate and consistent watering is essential for your plants. Infrequent, long soakings of water that thoroughly saturate the soil are more effective than frequent, light applications of water.
  • Due to variable geographical and environmental conditions, a specific watering schedule is difficult to define. However, as a rule of thumb, you should not allow the soil or the original root ball to completely dry out. During periods of drought or extreme summer heat, you may need to water as often as every few days. To determine if your plant needs water, dig a few inches into the soil next to the plant. If the soil is dry 2" to 3" below the surface, it is time to water.
  • Overwatering can be as damaging as under watering. Be sure that the area surrounding your plant has adequate drainage to move water away from the plant. If you choose to plant in a container, always select one with drainage holes to prevent your plant's roots from sitting in water.
  • Apply a 2" to 4" layer of shredded bark, compost, leaves, straw or other organic matter around your plants to promote moisture retention, maintain even soil temperatures and discourage weed growth. Replenish the mulch as needed.
  • Feed your plants once every 2 to 3 weeks during the growing season with a water-soluble fertilizer. Discontinue fertilizing by September 1st so your plants can harden off for winter dormancy.
  • Keep the area around your plants free of weeds. Weeds compete with surrounding plants for food, water and light. Walk around the garden periodically and pull weeds, including the roots, as soon as you see them.
  • Clip off any dead, damaged or unsightly growth as needed to maintain an attractive appearance. Remove spent flowers as blooms fade to encourage continuous flowering. Cut each plant down to a few inches above ground level after the foliage has died back in fall.

Winterizing Instructions
  • In mild zones (8-10), callas may be planted in-ground and allowed to go dormant in the garden. If freezing weather is expected, protect the bulbs by mounding a 6" to 8" layer of shredded bark, compost, leaves, straw or other organic material over them.
  • In colder zones (3-7), callas should be dug and stored in peat moss after the foliage has died back in late fall. To prevent rotting, space the bulbs so they are not touching one another. Keep the bulbs in a dark location where the temperature stays around 40 degrees F.
  • Containerized plants should be moved into an unheated, protected area such as a garage or cellar before temperatures drop below freezing. Check soil moisture every 2 to 3 weeks and water as needed during winter.
  • In spring, re-plant stored bulbs outdoors after the threat of freezing weather has passed. Containerized plants should be moved back into the garden sunlight where they will begin to repeat their yearly performance.
