Product Information

Introduce a fresh shade into your garden with the unique blooms of this highly sought-after and simply beautiful Black Calla Lily. 'Cantor' produces deep summertime, maroon-purple trumpets - you'll think they're completely black!

The big, tropical-looking flowers emerge across many months of summer, perched proudly on upright stems. Even the plant is a beauty, with wide and bright green leaves, often lightly speckled.

Grow singly in pots about 10-15cm diameter, or all three in a 20cm diameter pot. For best results, they should be kept very warm and well-watered once planted for two weeks to kick-start them out of dormancy - on a heater or an airing cupboard is fine, then once the green shoots appear, they can be placed outside.

The corms are shallow, and need to be planted saucer shape up, just with a shallow 1-2cm covering of compost only. You will be rewarded with tremendous displays of sumptuous calla flowers that last for 5-6 weeks and appear again year after year.

Supplied as a set of three bulbs, ready to plant.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Zantedeschia:

  • Plant corms any time between February and June when the danger of frost is past.
  • Bury them saucer shape up, just with a shallow 1-2cm covering of open, well-draining compost.
    Water well.
  • Keep them warm and well-watered once planted for two weeks to break their dormancy - on a heater or an airing cupboard is fine, then once the green shoots appear, they can be placed outside.

Aftercare Advice for your Black Calla Lily:

  • Water plants only when the soil is slightly dry as plants dislike soggy soil.
  • If you wish, pots can be sunk into beds and borders for the summer - callas will thrive in full sun to partial shade bright, indirect light being ideal.
  • give plants a feed with a general-purpose fertiliser once the flowers are fading to promote leaf growth.

Winter Protection Advice:

  • Before frost threatens bring pots indoors, storing them in their pots in a dry place. In spring, restarting the cycle again with light and water.
