Calla lilies are one of the most beautiful flowers with a unique flower form. Calla lilies come in a wide array of colors viz., shades of green, pink, purple, yellow and orange.
Callas are also known by such other common names viz., arum lily, trumpet lily, Pig lily, or Miniature Calla Lily. Calla lilies are native to Southern Africa. Calla lilies are easy to grow and are generally grown from a bulb or rhizome.
Calla lilies are excellent houseplants, best for beds, borders, bouquets and flower arrangements.
Calla Lilies signify magnificence and beauty. Further combined with the attributes associated with the color you choose, Calla lilies can convey a wealth of meaning.
Calla lilies have long-petioled, basal leaves arising from a thick rhizome. The inflorescence, on a leafless flower stalk, consists of a spathe and spadix. The spathe, a large, flaring, trumpet-shaped bract, surrounds the spadix which is covered with tiny flowers.
Calla lilies average between 1 and 3 feet high and have a diameter of approximately 1 to 1 and 1/2 feet when fully grown. The Calla lily leaves are 1 1/2' long, rich green. The green leaves of the calla lily are shaped like arrowheads and have white or silver speckles.
|Those with children and pets should use caution when growing calla lilies. They contain a poisonous ingredient called oxalic acid. If this plant is ingested, a poison control center should be called immediately.|
