The Calla has beautiful, large, white, durable, and waxy white blooms and it is nearly odorless. It has large clumps of broad, arrow-shaped dark green leaves. Calla captures the lush folds and surface texture of the stiff, waxy bract (a colorful modified leaf) that enfolds the phallic cob of flowers known as a spadix. Who said botany isn’t sexy?
Originating from southern Africa, it is a perennial bulb plant. Its preferred habitat is in streams and ponds or on the banks. The inflorescences are large and are produced in spring, summer, and autumn.
The calla is a long stem: 60-70 cm. A finecut is made up of 20 stems.
