Callas

Elegant as they are, white callas pale beside the newer, more vivid dwarf calla hybrids. Colored callas, ranging from 1 to 2 feet tall, make excellent border plants, and they thrive when massed in large (16- to 18-inch-diameter) containers.

Our favorites: 'Mango' (shown here) bears brilliant orange flowers with red flames and red-orange throats. Plants grow 2 feet tall. 'Flame' looks similar (yellow-orange blooms resembling candle flames darken to red as they age).

Pacific Callas carries 'Mango' calla rhizomes. For 'Flame' calla rhizomes, try Van Bourgondien.
