Outdoors as a perennial, callas look great alongside cannas, interspersed with ferns and hostas, or near a water feature. Callas are often grown as house plants. The large, showy spathes and lush foliage of calla lilies make them perennial favorites, indoors or out. warning all parts of calla lilies are poisonous if ingested and contact with the sap may irritate sensitive skin.
