    Calla Lily, not sure what zone you are in, but they are listed as hardy zones 8-10, so it might not make it through the winter if are in a colder region.

    It's a Calla Lily, I live in zone 4 and have to dig it up before winter sets in. I keep it in a pot of dirt in the basement,and replant when spring comes around.

    Isn't that a lovely color? Love calla lilies. In NY, he will need to dig it up and store it out of the cold during the winter, if he wants to have it next year. I keep mine in large pots which can be moved.

    I live in Zone 7 & I have never dug my my Calla Lilies after planting them. They have came back for the past 7 years with no problem. I don't even mulch or cover the bed in winter. They are hardier then they look.

    It's a Kala least that's what my daughter, Kala, called them when she was 3 and misunderstood the name when I told her what it was. We still call them that to this day, and she's 27 now. :)

    I have a couple of calla lily's in my garden and I leave them outside all winter, ours winter get pretty cold, but I cover them up real good with leaves, and so far they have survived.

    This is a calla lily. You can leave them outside all winter in more temperate climates and they will return the following year bigger and fuller! Really pretty plant and pretty hardy

    Yes, it's definitely a Calla Lily. They come in some lovely colors. It used to be only white ones were seen. That's probably why you didn't recognize the plant. I just Love them!!

    I have a yellow calla lily, that my daughter gave me for Mother's Day. I live in Zone 6 and brought it indoors last year and occasionally watered it. It's in a 6 inch pot and it came back this spring, but I'm wondering if I should transplant it to a bigger pot. It got one flower this year, where last year it had 2-3 flowers. Any suggestions?
