Calla Lilies: Exotic Beauty for Any Occasion

"The calla lilies are in bloom again. Such a strange flower -- suitable to any occasion."
(Katherine Hepburn in Stage Door - 1937)

Originally cultivated on the beautiful coast of southern Africa, calla lilies (aka calla lillies) are stunning and dramatic flowers. Additionally, the strength and durability of calla lilies enable them to hold up perfectly as part of a centerpiece or wedding bouquet and to be enjoyed long after the event is long over.

Calla lilies are available in a multitude of shades and colors from pure white and sunny yellow to vibrant orange and luscious red. With so many fabulous choices, calla lilies can be used in virtually any flower arrangement to create a dashing, sophisticated look. Consequently, it is not surprising that calla lilies have become the flower of choice for both interior designers and event planners; their durability, longevity, and array of breathtaking colors make calla lilies a fantastic choice for decorating both homes and special events.

When choosing calla lilies, it is important to understand the different styles offered. Mini calla lilies (also commonly referred to as mini calla lillies) are usually about 10-12 inches tall and are available in a wide range of vivid colors. A full size calla lily can be as tall as three feet and is usually white or green. The taller variety is generally only available for a few months during the summer, making them a truly exotic and striking selection.

With their exquisite dagger-shaped leaves, calla lilies are an eye-catching way to decorate any event. They are frequently found in a robust pink color and are often as a complement in bouquets with other varieties of white, red and yellow flowers. Calla lily arm bouquets are popular among brides seeking a graceful, serene look. With a calla lily arm bouquet, the bride cradles the long-stemmed flowers in the crook of her arm as she walks down the aisle. Calla lilies are also ideal flowers for a "clutch wedding bouquet," where the bride holds the flowers in her hands. Both of these bouquet options create a sleek, classy bouquet and a simple, polished look.

When cutting calla lilies, it is best to cut the flower when the spathe (the leaf-like part of the flower) is already fully opened or at least partially opened, but while the pollen is still present. Once cut, you can keep your calla lilies dry at a temperature of 40 F for as long as three days, or if kept wet they will remain radiant for as long as a week. Cut for weddings and parties, calla lilies can be taken home by guests and enjoyed for days after the event.
