information: To bad this plant is native to
tropical regions because its a real beauty. The "Water Calla
Lily" has large, bright green glossy leaves to 16" in
length. During the summer it can produce large white spathe shaped
flowers to 10" in length, with a yellow spadice.
Set pre-started plants in spring after all danger of frost has
passed, at the ponds
edge or directly in the pond utilizing baskets at a maximum depth of
10". When grown in a shady area the plant will elongate and
reach the maximum specs listed above. "Water Calla Lily"

to have a greenhouse pond... move the plant indoors the first week
of September... or before first frost. Remove any dead or dying
foliage and flowers as it appears.
