If I had to make a list of "bang for the buck" plants in my gardens, surely Calla Lilies would be on that list. So dramatic and so easy, especially for shady areas that need a bit of drama. These ones are five foot tall and thrive on little attention other than regular water. The blooms are so pretty and make lovely cut flowers that last a long time, but do not overlook the foliage. I often use Calla Lily leaves in arrangements that don't even have any of the flowers in them. A tall vase of foliage alone will work indoors and last forever. So lovely and elegant, so easy, what more could you ask?
