The stunning architecture of the Calla Lilly pictured here coupled with the towering blooms of purple delphiniums creates an incredibly graceful and exotic display.

They need to be lifted in the fall in colder zones but they can be planted in the ground or into containers once the danger of frost has passed.

Allow about 8 weeks after planting to see the first shoots appearing.
