About Calla Lily
Calla lilies belong to the genus Zantedeschia and are often referred to as Zantedeschia aethiopica or Zantedeschia rehmannii, depending on the species.
They have trumpet-shaped flowers with a single petal that wraps around a finger-like spadix. The flowers come in various colors, including white, pink, yellow, orange, and even deep purple.
They are often associated with purity, holiness, and faithfulness, making them popular choices for weddings and religious ceremonies.
There are two main types of calla lilies:
- Indoor Calla Lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica): These tender perennials boast large white flowers and thrive in pots, offering year-round beauty indoors.
- Outdoor Calla Lilies (Zantedeschia elliottiana): These hardy tuberous varieties come in an array of vibrant colors like yellow, pink, purple, and even black. They flourish in warm climates and add drama to summer gardens.
