I agree that the pictures in catalogs are decieving but the PF photos are representative of color. This calla has done very well here, growing near 3 feet tall and was hardy in zone 7b last winter with absolutely no care, not even mulch.

Tall grower, not very prolific bloomer. Good cut flower. Unfortunately, merchants are using an "adjusted" photo to sell the bulbs, and it isn't really the correct color.
