Calla Lily is an old-fashioned, but very elegant garden
plant, native to South Africa. These elegant flowers have graced many bridal
bouquets in Europe, in old times.
Calla lily is a clump forming herbaceous plant, arising
from tubers, with large arrow shaped leaves. It grows to about
2 ft in height. The flower consists of a orange-yellow finger-like
spathe surrounding a white spadix. Pink and yellow varieties of
Zantedeschia are also available. Golden
has elongated oval
shaped leaves, dotted with small white splotches, and bright, gleaming golden
yellow spathes. All are strikingly beautiful, and even when not in flower, the
large, tropical looking, spear shaped leaves make a lush statement, like
bananas, cannas or ginger.
