    Frequently Asked Questions

    The ideal time to plant Calla Lily California Gold bulbs is in the spring when soil temperatures rise above 60°F (15°C) and the risk of frost has subsided. Planting in spring allows the bulbs to establish a robust root system and grow healthily before they bloom in the summer months.

    The ideal planting time can depend on the climate of your living area. Calla lilies are hardy in USDA hardiness zones 8-10, so within these zones it is safe to plant them early in the season. In these milder climates it is also possible to plant them in the fall, providing the rhizomes with a cool, dormant period before they begin to grow in spring.

    If you live in an area with a colder climate, it is important to wait until the last frost has passed. For indoor planting, you can start the bulbs 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost and transplant them outdoors once the weather conditions are favorable.

    Calla Lily California Gold generally takes 8 to 12 weeks to bloom after planting, depending on the specific growing conditions. To encourage healthy growth and abundant flowering, provide the plant with the right balance of sunlight, water, and nutrients.

    Ideally, the plant should receive 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily and consistent moisture in well-draining soil. A monthly application of balanced, slow-release fertilizer during the growing season will further support its development. Once in bloom, the flowers can last for several months, and proper care throughout the growing season, including regular deadheading, can help prolong the flowering period.

    California Calla Lilies, including the California Gold variety, are perennial plants, meaning they can come back every year in regions with suitable climates. In USDA hardiness zones 8-10, they can be grown as perennials, where they will naturally go dormant in the winter and regrow in spring. Just make sure to add an extra layer of mulch during the wintertime.

    In colder climates (zones 7 and below), they need to be treated as annuals or their rhizomes should be dug up and stored indoors during the winter to be replanted the following spring. Carefully lift them up, clean and let them dry. You can store them in a slightly cool (45-50 degrees Fahrenheit), dry, and dark place such as a garage or basement. Wrap it in a bag with peat moss.

    California Gold Calla Lilies can grow well both in pots and in the ground. The choice depends on individual preference and available space. Potted plants offer flexibility, as they can be moved to optimal sunlight exposure and brought indoors during harsh weather conditions.

    When planting in pots, use a well-draining potting mix and ensure the container has drainage holes. When planting in the ground, choose a location with well-draining soil and appropriate sunlight exposure. Regardless of the planting method, proper care is essential for healthy growth and abundant blooms.
