'Escape' Calla Lily (Zantedeschia) is all about drama. Plant them as a focal point or with white Callas for even more excitement. 'Escape' shows off nicely with Allium, Salvia, Monarda, and Veronica as well. They create an elegant focal point when planted en masse as well. Blooming for 6-12 weeks, Callas are surprisingly easy to grow. They do best in full sun or partial sun when protected from the hottest afternoon exposure. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the flowers, and they are deer and rabbit resistant. We recommend planting 3 rhizomes within a square foot area for a striking effect of blooms and foliage. Cut flowers last up to two weeks in a vase. Hardy in zones 8-10, Callas may be grown as annuals in colder areas, or dug before the first frost and stored in a cool, dry area to re-plant the following spring.

Not recommended for California, where Calla Lilies are considered invasive.
