Calla Lilies are also known as Arum Lilies, and are in fact neither a true Lily, nor Arum or Calla. It is also often erroneously spelled as "cala lily". The proper name for a calla lily is Zantedeschia, and it is native to Southern Africa. They will grow best in moist soil and with full sun.
It has an elegant flute shaped flower that is reminiscent of a champagne glass, which may explain why it is such a popular flower for use in weddings. They are also used in many paintings, they're visible in many of Diego Rivera's works of art. There are now many different sizes and colors of Calla Lilies available, many of which can be featured in our floral designs here at George's Flowers!
