These pretty flowers look familiar Clara...! 8) I hope my newly planted Asclepias Tuberosa gets as big as your planting some day!

I've already forgotten the name of the plant you gave me. :oops: No hurry, but can you send me the name when you get a chance? Glad you have such gorgeous weather today for your "do".

Beautiful flowers! I always thought Calla Lily's were supposed to be an indoor plant, had I known they like gardens I would have bought one this year. I love them. Such a pretty bloom!

Callas can be grown in pots outside or in the ground. I have white, pink, yellow and reddish. They multiply so I have many bulbs. In fall before we get a heavy frost I dig the plants , keep them in the garage till the foliage dies (about 2 weeks) then store the bulbs/corms in our basement cold room for the winter.
