Description of Zantedeschia 'Cantor' - Black (Pack of 3 Bulbs) Calla Lily - Zantedeschia

These Black Calla lilies, also known as Zantedeschia 'Cantor', not just any calla, a deep dark purple, one of the blackest of the black callas. Just as the cantor leads the choir 'Cantor', will surely lead the show in the garden.
 
Cantor Calla Lily would look amazingly exotic if planted amongst other callas like Brasila. Cantor, a newish variety sure to make a dramatic statement in your pots or borders.

Planting and growing instructions: Zantedeschia/Calla 'Cantor' Lily Bulbs - Black - from the award winning Harts Nursery

How to plant Callas

  • Zantedeschia (also known as Calla Lilies) is ideal for planting in containers for houseplants or for seasonal outdoor bedding displays.
  • Plant just under the surface of the soil with the eyes of the rhizome facing upwards.
  • Water freely throughout the summer months and feed with a fertiliser every two weeks. 

Planting Callas in pots

  • If planting in pots, use a loam-based compost like John Innes No. 2 but a good multi-purpose compost is also fine. 
  • Plant one rhizome to an 8" pot or 3 to a 16" pot. 

Planting Callas in the garden

  • Depending on how you want your display to look, you can space your rhizomes 30cm (12") apart or plant in groupings of 3 rhizomes slightly closer together.

How to care for Callas

  • In most areas, the foliage will be hit by frost and slightly blackened. This should be cut away.
  • Lift Rhizomes before the first frosts and store them over winter before replanting them next Spring (after the risk of frost has passed).
  • Store Rhizomes in trays of compost in a cool, dark, frost-free location, e.g a garage, shed, warm greenhouse or conservatory.
  • Do not over water.

How hardy are these plants - for near Inveraray on Loch Fyne in Argyll?

Cantor calla lilies are semi-hardy. We would suggest lifting them in the winter to protect from frosts.
