The Q&A Archives: Calla Lillys

Question: What would make a perfectly healthy plant look like it's been overwatered? I bought 2 Calla Lillys from Home Depot, planted both in my yard, at separate ends. One is doing very well, the other looks like it's dying.

Answer: If you've recently planted your calla lilies, one might be just a little more stressed than the other. Or, if your plants have finished flowering, what you are seeing may be just part of a natural growth cycle. Calla lilies rest after they have flowered. I can't think of any other reason for your plant to appear to be overwatered since they like moist soils. Wish I had more information to offer.
