Study to Lilies Calla

  • Featured on Art universe Group, All Glorious Lilies Group and Artistic Flowers Group
  • Calla Lilies are native to southern Africa in Lesotho, South Africa, and Swaziland. There are seven species which grow in colors of white, yellow, and pink.
  • “It is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant, evergreen where rainfall and temperatures are adequate, deciduous where there is a dry season. Its preferred habitat is in streams and ponds or on the banks. It grows to 0.6–1 m (2–3 ft) tall, with large clumps of broad, arrow shaped dark green leaves up to 45 cm (18 in) long. The Inflorescences are large, produced in spring, summer and autumn, with a pure white spathe up to 25 cm (10 in) and a yellow spadix up to 90 mm (3½ in) long.”

    Congratulations on your wonderful features. One of my favourite flowers. I only bought a miniature version of these the other day from a nursery. Love the purples and whites. So outstanding. sandy
