Hi and Welcome to NGA! Yes, the calla is a perennial. You can plant them in April or early may. They will grow and bloom, and then go dormant. I don't know where you're located. You might fill out your profile so we can help you better. In Arizona, I leave the corms in the pot after they die down, and they come back the following year. In a cold climate you'll have to dig them up and store them where they won't freeze. Be aware that all parts of the plant are toxic to cats and dogs.
