Calla lily 'Goldrush' - A Midsummer Beauty!


from Gardening at Mohonk 
The hybrid calla lily 'Goldrush' is a tender bulb that is easy to grow. It has striking yellow blooms that light up patio pots and make great, long lasting cut flowers.  

The calla “blooms,” are not flowers at all. They are a fleshy leaf that is uniquely shaped.  


Green foliage, spotted with white, adds beauty even when not in bloom. It is  tough and long-lasting, and wonderful in cut flower arrangements



Gold Rush's slender, upright form allows you to enjoy lots of blooms without giving up much square footage. Good for tight spaces. Excellent with dahlias in the center of a bed or with cascading plants in containers. One bloom can last for up to 2 weeks. 

Zantedeschia 'Gold Rush' likes partial shade/full sun, grows  16 - 22" high, and is hardy in zones 8 - 10.  It flowers all summer long.

 In cooler zones, lift tubers in fall and store indoors.

  1. I love Calla lilies, but I never have good luck with them. If they come up they fail to bloom. I never know if they are not getting enough sun, or too much water or not enough water. Do you have any special hints how to grow them? I loved your photos! Thanks for sharing.
