This beautiful calla lily was found growing in Imperial Beach, California.
I dedicate this lily to Trish Meyer…who knows so much about Nature…and who’s home page was the inspiration I needed to change my own. Thank you Trish, for sharing your knowledge about plants and animals, and for all your kindness.
Definition of CALLA LILY
Any of several herbs (genus Zantedeschia) of the arum family; especially : a house or greenhouse plant (Z. aethiopica) with a white showy spathe and yellow spadix —called also calla
The calla lily originates from the southern parts of Africa, near the northern border of Madagascar. This area has a tropical climate in which the calla lily really finds itself at home with a steady temperature, rainy seasons and dry seasons. As there is no real winter with cold winds and snow to worry about there are calla lilies that bloom all year around as long as they have a sufficient supply of water, energy and nutrition.
