|Summer-blooming, graceful Callas have storybook charm and are excellent for children's gardens, flower borders and accents in containers. The most common is Zantedeschia aethiopica. It can be grown as a water plant, and tolerates many types of soil. Other types, which need slightly-acid soil, are the smaller-growing Zantedeschia rehmannii and yellow-flowering Zantedeschia elliottiana. In the ground over winter, plants spread to form large groups. In Zones 7 and colder, store underground stems each fall.
The soft pink flowers have central yellow spikes. In fall, gradually withhold water to allow foliage to go dormant. In warm climates, replant in autumn. In other areas plant in spring.
