Vista, California - There are traditional calla lilies, and then there are Calypso Callas! VIVA! Calypso Callas add tropical flair to the garden with a wide range of festive colors. There is deep purple one, a mauve pink, bright yellow, tangerine, lilac and others. Any gardener who adds this plant to their landscape pallet is sure to be impressed.
Ray French, product manger for Floragem, says “Many gardeners already know the traditional calla lily. With all of the vibrant colors available in the Calypso line, they will fall in love with this easy to grow plant all over again.”
VIVA! Calypso Calla lilies have the same culture needs as traditional callas, full to part sun and moist well drained soil. These plants have been bred to be more compact and display a full range of colorful blooms. They will do well when planted in a garden bed, are great for stand alone or mixed containers, and can even be used as a long lasting cut flower.
VIVA! Calypso Calla can be found nationwide at The Home Depot stores this spring.
The VIVA! program introduces a variety of new and noteworthy flower varieties into the U.S. and Canadian markets and contains a mixture of annuals, perennial and woody ‘color’ for use in home landscapes by home gardeners or landscapers. By looking at new flower breeding from around the world, VIVA! and The Home Depot bring innovative new garden ideas to homeowners from coast to coast.
