    Frequently Asked Questions

    The ideal time to plant Calla Lily Schwarzwalder 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 Rehmanii Schwarzwalder typically blooms within 8-12 weeks after planting. The exact time it takes for flowers to appear can vary depending on factors such as climate, soil conditions, and the overall health of the plant.

    To encourage healthy blooms, plant your Calla Lily in well-draining soil with adequate nutrients and provide consistent watering. Applying a balanced, slow-release fertilizer during the growing season can also promote vigorous growth and flowering. Keep in mind that proper care and maintenance are essential to help your Calla Lily Rehmanii Schwarzwalder reach its full blooming potential.

    Calla Lily Schwarzwalder can be propagated by dividing the rhizomes, the underground stems from which the plant grows. To propagate, begin by carefully digging up the rhizomes after the plant has finished flowering or during the plant's dormancy in the fall.

    Gently separate the rhizomes, ensuring that each division has at least one growing eye or bud. Replant the divided rhizomes in a well-draining soil mixture and water them thoroughly. Ensure each new plant receives adequate sunlight, moisture, and nutrients to establish a healthy root system. It's essential to be patient, as newly propagated Calla Lilies may take a year or two to produce blooms.

    Yes, Calla Lily Schwarzwalder plants are perennials, which means they come back every year, producing their signature blooms and foliage. In warmer climates (USDA zones 8-10), they can be grown as outdoor perennials, going through a period of dormancy in winter before sprouting again in spring. Just layer them up with some extra mulch.

    In colder climates (zones 7 and below), the rhizomes must be dug up and stored indoors during winter to protect them from frost. Replant the rhizomes in spring after the risk of frost has passed, and they should grow and bloom again, providing a beautiful display of flowers each year.
