The South African Calla Lily is primarily known as a floral flower and is one of the most popular stems for bridal bouquets. Thanks to its popularity during the Art Deco period, many of us see a single white stem as a symbol of pure beauty. But this elegant flower is easy to grow, hardy, and happy in just about any yard.
Although the white Calla Lily is the most popular, the Calla comes in many other varieties. Most popular are the salmon-colored Cameo, the bright yellow Golden, and the pink Superba. A bouquet of multi-colored Calla Lilies arranged in a vase in a country kitchen changes the flower’s disposition from all-white elegance to bright cheerfulness.
