The arum lily, also known as the calla lily, is most commonly seen as a cut flower. But the arum lily also grows well in the landscape. African natives, arum lilies need warm temperatures and moist soil to grow. They fare best on pond edges or areas with high rainfall or a high water table. The best way to start arum lilies in your garden is to plant bulbs in early spring.
Things you need
Turn and loosen the soil to a depth of 20 to 25 cm (8 to 10 inches) with a hoe.
Rake the soil smooth.
Plant each small bulb 2.5 cm (1 inch) deep and 30 to 60 m (1 to 2 feet) apart.
Water the soil until the top 7.5 to 10 cm (3 to 4 inches) are quite moist -- even soaking.
