I have read that callas are only hardy to zone 10. I am constantly "pushing the envelope" when it comes to zones.

This calla was planted last spring from a corm. The picture is what it eventually will look like, as it only had one flower on it this season which lasted about three weeks.

I sure hope it will continue, as I do not "dig them up".
Do they need any special fertilzer?

They are just coming up again. Maybe this time I can take a picture of them in my garden. It will probably be a least two or three weeks away from bloom time.
