The Q&A Archives: Calla Lily Bulbs

Question: I planted calla lily and gladiolus bulbs 4 weeks ago and the lilies have not come up even though the gladiolus's have! Do these normally take longer? They were planted according to the package and have been given sufficient water, fertilizer and sun.

Answer: Calla lilies like warmth so I think they are just waiting for warmer soil temperatures. Don't give up on them yet!
