Buy Zantedeschia 'Captain Romance' (PBR) (Captain Series) calla lily bulb: Sublime form for a reliably moist soil

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, reliably moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    Green flushed at their base, the rich pink spathes of this beautiful arum lily surround contrasting, golden yellow spadices and will mix easily with most shades of pink, blue and purple. Originating from southern Africa where they are found colonising reliably moist soils or lake margins, these elegant perennials look beautiful in the border, but are also excellent for cutting and adding to a vase.

  • Garden care: Plant the tubers 7-10cm deep and 30cm apart into rich soil or good quality potting compost. Water sparingly until new shoots start to emerge and then start to water more regularly. Apply a deep mulch in autumn.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant

A beautiful flower. I planted one in a pot and a couple in the garden and they all did well. It is a lovely colour and a very pretty flower.

I bought 3 of these Cala Lily bulbs which I planted in a pot this year. The blooms are eye-catchingly large and pretty. I would like to try them in the garden next year.

Lovely bulbs which gave a reliable flowers from June through to November. I use these in pots in different colours for different locations in the garden or to fill gaps after other things have finished flowering. They dont need a huge pot but will give great results if given plenty of room

Why does my calla lily not flower? I have it in a pot and every year there is a good show of leaves but no flower.

Hello there I can't be sure why your Zantedeschia isn't flowering, but you could give it a push by feeding it with a high potash fertiliser regularly during the growing season.
