I like the idea of mixed planting of foot ball lily, what if it is left there to naturalise? Are yours a fresh planting if so when did you plant them.
brig sb climate of sheikhupura is similar to Lahore only difference is shade of trees.my football lilly,clivias and callas are growing under dense shade of mango trees.only dotted leaf calla lily is plantation of this year other 4 calla lilies are from previous year.green leaf calla lillies are growing healthy with big leaves and height of 2 feet but no blooms.so till now it is failure for me also but i am hopeful that dotted leaf calla lilly will bloom INSHAHALLAH.My football lillies remain in ground.

Some lovely pics and you seem to have a certain skill in colour and form composition. Appreciate and noted how that bug and the leaf it had eaten (presumambly) did not seem to make you panic nor detract from the overall beauty of your plantings.

I have also picked up a tip from your posting, namely that dark colour gladioli flowers show the heat stress deterioration quickly.

Ifzal
