I recently moved into a house with an amazing calla lily in the backyard. It had two beautiful blooms but nothing since. Is there anything I need to do now that the plant appears to be done blooming for the season?

Calla should be good to zone 8
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Keep on watering, and see if you get any more blooms. I think it may be finished. The leaves should die down and it'll come back next year when the time is right. I've had it in 9A for about 10 years. It blooms every year and then dies back til the leaves come up again.

You could give it a bit of fertilizer to help it make leaves and bigger rhizomes for next year. They also really like plenty of water as long as the leaves are growing.
