The calla lily is not really a lily at all, but rather a very elegant herbaceous flowering plant related to the caladiums and jack-in-the-pulpit. The stunning blooms of all varieties of calla make dramatic, long-lasting and spectacular accents to any garden or indoor furnishings, colors and decorating themes. Callas are favorite featured accents for weddings, formal occasions and even funerals.
Although showy and aristocratic, the white varieties of calla are more common than colored specimens, which include shades of yellow, orange, green, pink, lavender and purple.
Like most flowers, the calla lily has a symbolic meaning. It is, ironically, associated with both weddings and funerals. The calla lily is symbolic of marriage and purity because of its white color and its trumpet-like shape, similar to a woman’s shape. It is also the symbol of rebirth and resurrection; therefore, it is widely used in funeral arrangements and planted in cemeteries.
