Their bulbs have always worked for me

Awesome ! 😍

I love callas so I bought these. Received, planted (inside), already growing in a short time ! Amazing bulbs, sprouted 2 to 3 leaves off each. Saw the "speckled leaves" question, mine are green, but these bulbs are so prolific, I don't mind if the leaves stay green ! I bought for the size, never knew leaves were speckled or not. 😁

Spots?

Couldn't be more pleased with the size, health, and rapid growth of these corms from Easy to Grow.

I fell in love with a 'Giant' calla planted in the small courtyard of a coffee shop in down town Sonoma Ca decades ago. It was at least 6 ft. over my head and flowering. This plant was huge in comparison to the knee high callas covering my Bay area garden, and I was determined to one day find out what it was and acquire some. I have found alot of confusion regarding this plant. Some called Hercules, others White Giant some with speckled leaves others not.
This product fits most descriptions of 'White Giant' as it is described as having white speckled leaves. I am a bit concerned that although my corms from this company are absolutely thriving in large pots for the winter, they have solid green leaves, no speckles as described.
Hoping someone can clear this up for me.
Thanks

10 for 10!!!

Huge bulbs in good condition. I bought ten and they all came individually wrapped. I planted them this fall in October 2020 and all ten have already sprouted and are doing quite well 3 months later. I can't wait until they bloom!

I have held onto these bulbs through thick and thin

They preform best is a well ballanced yard and just keep having babies. They will limp by if you are in a situation like an apartment where sunlight is poor and frost is bad and I have hung these in baskets, put them in insololated planters and now finally in the ground .
Like that cactus that your Grandmother may have given you, it just keeps comming back when you give it some attention or withdrawals and goes dormant if ignored.
I am lucky to live in Northern California close to the American River where Barley was grown for over 100 years, leaving very rich sandy soil.
PS I like to give them a treat of Bone Meal and they love it and it is so cheap but you dog may love it too so wait until puppy is taking a nap to spread the meal and cover it up.

Our designer covered a gentle slope with these Giant White Callas. They are just magnificent. We use underground drip irrigation, and if we keep these watered and use compost on them every four months or so, they bloom about ten months of the year.

No Speckles?

My Easy to Grow , White Giant Calla corms arrived quickly. They were large and quite healthy, with many growing points. Within just a few weeks the leaves emerged and both plants have grown fantastically. I couldn't be more pleased with the health, and quality of these plants so far. I am a bit concerned that the leaves of these Callas are a solid green with not even a hint of the white speckles this variety is described as having. This particular variety is always described as having white speckled leaves. Can someone please let me know if perhaps I have received another variety such as "Hercules" in error. I have seen many mages of the White Giant with just a few emerging leaves and they have speckles even at a young stage of growth. One of my new babies has at least 5 robust sold green leaves. Thanks
