Calla Lilies

I always enjoy my bright yellow calla lilies.  This year I planted some in the ground (usually I only plant them in containers on the deck).  A few of them bloomed this week.

A few feet from the ground bloomers, I have that huge container which behaved beautifully by blooming at the same time.
Here's the frontal shot:
Thankfully, the deer don't eat calla lilies.

 Two of the two dozen  Asiatic Tango lilies managed to escape the deer banquet last week. I am grateful that I did at least get to see one flower bloom from this 'Lionheart' grouping:
As I had hoped, the planting would have look great against this Ninebark shrub. 

'Olina' is another of my favorite of the Tango series. 
These are the only two that survived.
 
I hope everyone is enjoying the last week of July.  I am LOVING our very cool summer this year.  Last week it dropped down in the high 40's one night!

  3. I ordered the same Tango lilies from Brecks with an intro offer of 50% off. I think the deep purple/black and yellow coloring is strikingly pretty. I'm planting them in the fenced in area of my yard due to my deer problem.

    1. The deer certainly love them! I have had them for a few years now and it's always a challenge to actually get them in flower before the deer eat them. :(

  5. Sunshine on a stalk! How pretty. I've always meant to try them , but they're so beautiful, I figure they must be "difficult"?

    1. Not difficult at all, Sue. But you do have to dig them all up and overwinter in an unheated garage or someplace similar.

  6. Your Calla Lilies are so pretty Zoey. Mine has not bloomed yet, I think they need a little more sunshine. I love yellow and blue together so I love your container.

    1. Thanks, Beth. I enjoy the foliage on the callas and cannas as much (or more) than the flowers!
