Pig Lilies

I thought Calla Lilies were exotic and hard to grow. Exotic, yes, hard to grow, not so very. After I read they're called 'pig lilies' in their native habitat, I tried them. They require oceans of water to do well. They were great in the greenhouse in a plastic pot with an attached saucer. The Callas in the garden died back after a hard freeze. They need rain to sprout out again.

  1. I also found that the white calla grows very easily here, but the colors are very picky, and are not nearly so hardy.



I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
