Calla lilies

My calla lilies are growing. I planted them last year but they didn't grow flowers and now I can't remember what color they're supposed to be ;) I hope they grow flowers this year. They're very popular with artists like Diego Rivera ...

I love calla lilies, Crystal, but haven't tried growing them. Not sure if they thrive in my area. I've always been intrigued by the use Diego Rivera makes of them in those painful depictions of Mexican laborers harvesting and selling luxuries for the rest of the world, which are to their backs mere burdens.

Hi William,

Oh, I'm such a dope - I never even considered that aspect of his paintings. Must read more about him and his work.
