why are my calla lillies not blooming?

I live in central OK and my calla lillies appear healthy and tall, but they fail to bloom. If they bloom the flower does not open. Sometimes it gets a bloom,but does not open before it falls to the ground. What can I do?

Hi, In order to help, we need more information. Where are these plants growing? Sun? Shade? Are they potted or in the ground? Are they new bulbs or are these older plants that have never been divided? How much (if any) fertilizer do you give them? Give us more to go on and we can try to help.
