They look scorched, maybe by too much sunshine on wet leaves in a greenhouse?

It looks like rust. Do you have any cedar trees nearby?

Mine are only a foot high. Somewhat behind yours. I dont expect to be picking for a good few weeks yet.  Well done you.

I have a golden leaved Philadelphus that is bright and sunny looking, and at this time of year has a wonderful smell emanating from the flowers.  It is more shrub than tree though. Buddleja are cut down each year and flower on the current years growth, so don't provide a lot of privacy in Spring, the butterfllies like to feed on the flowers  from July onwards.  For a small tree you can underplant, how about a Robinia pseudoacacia Frisia.

Calla lilies - zantedeschia - any tips?

Feed it well, water often but do not let it stand in water. It will need to be stored frost free over winter and dry, so if you plant it outside now, dig it up in Autumn, like you would a dahlia.

I think it is due to the mild winter. Next year it will probably die off altogether. Just enjoy. Pull it out when you've had enough of it.

I would plant in the autumn, when the soil is damp. You might find it too hard to dig now.
