I thought common Calla Lilies were supposed to be easy to grow. I see them in my neighbors yards and they seem to practically take care of themselves. I bought one and put it in a shade spot beneath a tree in my yard. I live in a warm part of Southern CA but I keep it watered regularly. Soil always stays moist. It grows shoots but the quickly die at the ground level before the leaf even opens all the way. The local garden shop where I bought the plant had no advice. Does anyone else?

My experience with Callas is that they don't like wet feet. In southern California they may also prefer more sun.

In case my experience helps anyone else, I decided that the exceptionally humid weather might be a factor. I used just a little Fungen-x and the Lilly seems to be coming around.
