USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Details
(16-28" tall x 12-24” wide) ‘Captain Safari®’ Calla Lily packs plenty of punch in an easy-to-grow bulb. The large 3- to 5-inch blooms are chalice shaped and stand on long stems. Part of the Captain Series of Calla Lilies, Captain Reno® is bred for exceptional color and long-lasting cut flowers. Callas are easy to grow in full to partial sun. Plants tolerate wet soils, making them perfect for planting along streambeds, ponds, and water features. Plants are winter hardy in warmer climates, from zones 8-10, where they often bloom earlier in the season. In colder climates, plant them as annuals, or plant them in containers to make it easy to bring plants indoors over winter. Wherever you plant them, Callas are resistant to deer and rabbit browsing.

Planting Guides

Summer Blooming Bulbs, including popular varieties such as gladiolus and dahlias, are planted in the spring and bloom in the summer. Most of these bulbs are tropical and require warm weather to be planted. There must not be any danger of frost and your ground temperature must have reached 55 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. Many of our summer blooming bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched) but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. See page 15 of our Planting Guide for a bulb depth planting illustration.

Growing Calla Lilies:

These tender bulbs can be planted in pots or in the ground. Calla Lily bulbs can be planted as perennials in zones 9-10 (zone 8 if mulched) but should be treated as annuals in cooler climates. You can lift them and store them in the fall, or bring patio pots inside before frost. Calla Lily bulbs quickly create a sizable plant, often growing to 36" high.
