Unforgettable..



They really are! I did try to walk past them.. they look delicate, fragile, not in the plan for my new robust, easy care Aussie weather garden, but I couldn't do it! The moment I imagined looking at them in the garden outside my window while writing the blog the struggle was over :) It's not often I get so excited about a new plant but just look at the variegated colour, even the leaves, above, are gorgeous. Looking at the care instructions for 'calla lilies' here I think I may have planted at the wrong time seeing as we're into winter now.. but it's all relative, it was 23C today, perhaps they will survive after all, will show you when they have multiplied into many.. positive thinking :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. you might know them as California lilies!

  4. They are beautiful, Grace. We have to dig them out in the fall and replant in spring since they won't survive our winters. I think you will be fine!

  8. I am sure they will thrive. We saw some interesting calla lilies a few days ago, white with tiny little flowers.

  9. Oh gosh, these are gorgeous. No wonder you were enticed into taking them home. I wish I had the magic touch to grow something like this.

  13. Oh, Grace! I nearly bought some of these about a week ago! They're so gorgeous! I debated and debated and then convinced myself I didn't have just the right place for them. But they're still calling...stay tuned. I may have a similar post myself one of these days.
