Plant Families / Zantedeschia - Calla Lilies
Native to South Africa, Calla Lilies deserve a spot in the garden or at home. Whether used in borders, containers or as cut flowers, they always provide a spectacular effect with their rich, cheerful colors and their breathtaking trumpet-shaped flowers (spathe) surrounding a yellow finger-like stalk (spadix). And they are so easy to grow! With very little work needed, they will burst into bloom and add bright notes of summer color to the garden, or to your pots inside your home. There are 2 main types of Zantedeschia: cold-hardy Arum Lilies (Zantedeschia Aethiopica) with usually pure white flowers; and tender Calla Lilies with amazing flowers in almost all the colors of the rainbow and generally white-speckled leaves. There is surely one for you.
