    • Water your Calla Lily Picasso regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. 
    • Fertilize every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Calla Lily Picasso typically begins blooming in mid to late summer and will continue to produce its stunning flowers until the first frost. The bloom time may vary depending on the climate and growing conditions. In warmer regions, the flowering season may start earlier and last longer.

    Picasso is frost-hardy in USDA hardiness zones 8-10. This means that within these zones, you can plant Anneke earlier and it will bloom earlier. You can even leave it year-round in the ground. If you live in colder climates, you must wait with planting until the frost has passed. This is why Picasso will bloom later than in warmer regions. But in both regions Picasso will bloom all the way to the fall.

    To encourage continuous blooming, deadhead spent flowers and remove yellowing leaves. This will allow the plant to focus its energy on producing new blooms, extending the flowering season.

    Calla Lily Picasso, like other members of the Zantedeschia genus, contains insoluble calcium oxalate crystals, which can be toxic to pets if ingested. These crystals can cause irritation to the mouth, throat, and digestive tract, leading to symptoms such as drooling, vomiting, and difficulty swallowing.

    If you suspect your pet has ingested any part of the Calla Lily Picasso plant, seek immediate veterinary attention. To minimize risk, keep your Calla Lily Picasso in a location that is out of reach for your pets, or consider choosing a different, non-toxic plant variety for your home or garden.

    Propagating Calla Lily Picasso can be done by dividing the plant's rhizomes. In the late autumn, after the plant has finished blooming and started to go dormant, gently dig up the rhizomes from the soil. Carefully separate the rhizomes, ensuring each division has a healthy growth point or "eye."

    Allow the divided rhizomes to dry for a day or two in a cool, shaded area. Once they are dry, plant them in well-draining soil, about 4 inches deep and 12-18 inches apart. Water the newly planted rhizomes thoroughly and provide them with proper care, including adequate sunlight and fertilization, to encourage healthy growth and successful propagation.

    Picasso Lilies 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 and 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.
