Calla Lilly - Care Tips

Calla lilly  - Flowers.NL®

The Calla Lilly is a welcome guest at festive occasions.


In terms of color, the Calla offers you plenty of choice. The flower comes in white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange, green, black and two-tone. The most striking thing about the Calla is the beautifully stylized chalice. This calyx is actually a petal and grows serenely and stately from the stem. It is a kind of scale that opens slowly, until you can see deep into the heart. The real flowers are very small and are located on the spike in the calyx.


The Calla has several symbolic meanings. Calla is seen as a flower of purity and sympathy and stands for beauty. The Calla is also seen as a lucky flower. This dates back to the times of the Greeks and Romans. They associated the chalice-shaped flower with celebration and fun.


Calla comes from an area stretching from South Africa to Malawi, where it grows in swamps. There it is alternately soggy or dried out, which makes the Calla not only beautiful but also strong.
