Romantic Flower of the month: Calla Lily

Our second choice of flower has to be the Calla Lily; an elegant and classic flower, often found in bridal bouquets. Their unique and unusual shape and size make them stand out and Paul from Petal to the Metal, recommends using their height to complement tall arrangements.

Although the calla lily is generally thought to be ivory, the flower is also available in yellow, orange, light and dark pink, red and even dark burgundy. Associated with magnificence and beauty with the name calla coming from the Greek word for beautiful, this is a flower that expresses a wealth of meaning.

Did you know…?

The colourful part of the calla lily is not actually the flower but a modified leaf! The true flowers are tiny and can be found inside the funnel.

Find out what flower is called both ‘Love-in-the-Mist’ and ‘Devil in the Bush’, in our first blog and make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to find out what next month’s flower is!
