Visitors to the RHS Wisley Garden in Surrey may well have seen Captain Romance growing in the trials field, where it stood head and shoulders above all the dwarf pot varieties. Like all such varieties, Captain Romance needs room to grow, one corm to a pot is perfect, three and it looses it's beauty. Calla Lilies are easy to grow providing the soil is well drained and fertile, they dislike heavy soils, in which the corms rot quickly. In recent years they have become very popular, both as pot plants and long lasting cut flowers. Corms are best started off in pots, either in a warm greenhouse/conservatory and moved outside once the risks of frosts has gone. For one corm we would recommend about a 20 cm pot, filled with good quality compost. Captain Romance grows between 55-65 cm's tall, flowers are produced from around the end of June, until the first frosts. In the Autumn when the foliage has died back lift the corms and store them somewhere dry and warm for the Winter, replant them in the following Spring. Supplied as extra large size 20 cm + corms.
