General Description

Pale yellow flowers on strong green stems, perfect for a bouquet, are qualities of 'Harvest Moon' The inflorescence is comprised of a light yellow spathe wrapping around the finger-like pale spadix. Arrow-shaped dark green leaves have sparse white spots.

Calla lilies do best in moist, rich soil in sun or light shade, or potted in a fertile, well-drained mix, watered liberally from late spring to fall and sparingly in winter. Where not hardy, their rhizomes are best not disturbed but simply relocate the container for indoor storage over winter in well-ventilated, cool conditions. They make excellent plants for water gardens, containers, and moist, sunny borders.
