I have had this Calla Lily for about 4 years now and keep it coming back every year. It is planted within 3 feet of my house and over winters nicely with a pile of Autumn leaves over it.

Large and beautiful plant with many blooms.

Good flowering plant. I think I counted 11 blooms off a small bulb. Shocking! Nice color, ranging from dark yellow to orange edges.
