My patch of Calla Lilies were up about six inches when we had a snow storm. They froze and I don't know what to do about them. I dug one of them up and the bulb is intact but the top is mush. Should I just put it back in the ground and count it out for the year or pull it? I don't know how to trim it if I pull it out. I don't have much experience but I don't want to lose these because they are so beautiful.

I would just cut off any mushy, frozen areas and replant them. If your weather doesn't get too hot, they may try to bloom for you. Mine hate heat.

I would leave them be. The rhizomes will resprout.
