This week I picked up several stems of Cala Lily from one of the wholesalers - Mayesh LA - at The Los Angeles Flower Market. Wow! They were black in color, looked lovely and velvety and were perfect for a Halloween dinner I was flowering for a client. Cala Lily grow well in California in both full sun and partial shade. They look stunning grown in both pots and borders .In warmer climates the bulbs can be left in the ground to bloom again the following year.
