Can you plant Calla Lily in full sunlight? How tall will they grow? Are they okay in between rose bushes?

Calla (Zantedeschia) will take full sunlight, but in hot areas it does better with partial shade. Protection from hot afternoon sun would be helpful. Calla like very moist soil (some varieties will even tolerate "boggy" conditions), so you may not want to plant it too near to roses, which have different watering requirements. Heights vary from about 1 foot to 3 feet.
