Calla Lilies are beautiful flowers which sometimes fade all too quickly. Let's take a look at how long potted Calla Lilies can actually last.

Potted Calla Lilies can last for approximately four months in an active state of growth.

This includes a period of foliage growth in the first six weeks, followed by six to eight weeks of blooming.

After blooming the foliage will begin to yellow and fade, until the plant becomes dormant.

When the foliage goes dormant, the rhizomes can be dug and placed in a cool spot until spring.

Calla Lilies should come back every year if given the proper calla lily care.This is because Calla Lilies are perennial plants.

Calla Lilies grow very well in pots, whether grown as an indoor plant, or outdoors in summer.

Calla lilies have a period of active growth for approximately four months and then slowly fall back into dormancy.

If a Calla lily is in the right spot and given everything it needs to grow well, it can flower for up to two months.

The growth period however is much longer than the two month flowering period, and lasts about six months.

When the leaves have died back, and the plant has become dormant, the rhizome can be harvested, or essentially removed from the pot.

Dry out the rhizome by placing in a clean container, and place in a cool location for two to three months.

After the dormant period the rhizome will start to sprout for another flowering cycle. If planted, the rhizome will grow again, and rebloom if given the right growing conditions.

You can grow Calla Lilies for many years, just being aware of their growth cycles. The beautiful blooms are well with the effort.
