The Q&A Archives: Calla Lily

Question: My white Calla Lily has lost it's color. All of the blooms are now green. Any reason that you know of?

Answer: It is normal for the flowers to turn from white to green as they mature, especially if they are producing seeds. Look inside and you will probably find what looks like a little corn cob. These are seeds and your plant is using energy to develop the seeds. Cut them out of the flower or cut the flower off the plant and you should see a change in the next flowers it produces.
