Goes Great With


Odessa has everything you could want in a perennial…an elegant form, large flowers and an indescribably dramatic colour! Silky, near-black blooms arrive in midsummer as other seasonal perennials are starting to fade, and bless gardens and landscapes with beauty and flair that's sure to get attention. Callas are highly adaptable and will happily live in beds, borders, containers, even along the edge of a babbling water feature. Makes an outstanding choice for cut-flower bouquets, too.

Very pretty plant but not any where near black. Not at all like the picture. They are maroon, not maroon almost black, just a normal maroon color. Was disappointed in color but I like them any way. Very healthy and they were on sale so who can complain? But if I had paid full price I would be mad that I didn't get the true red instead.
sooo easy

I just love Breck's! These Lillys are sooo easy! Plant, feed, keep watered. I keep the in full daytime intense heat/ sunlight and have had no problems. I'm only giving them 4 stars b/c they are not as black as pictured, but they are a very dark purple and also i;ve had some white ones bloom. Still very pretty.
True Gem!

This is my favorite Calla Lily to grow. The blooms are a gorgeous color and last for quite awhile whether in a vase or left on the plant. The leaves are great to use when accenting cut arrangements of flowers.
Very pretty

Never grew these before, but they are very pretty, and truly black, not purple. Even my husband loves it!
