The Calla Lily is a truly unique and elegant flower. Their shape is like no other and are available in a huge range of colours & stem lengths. Calla lilies are grown from bulbous roots called tubers and are known under a variety of different names such as Pig Lilies, Calla Lilies, Arum Lilies, Trumpet Lilies and Zantedeschia. Calla lilies are not really lilies – they are part of the zantedeschia genus and originate from South Africa. Calla Lilies are grown commercially under glass and are available on the wholesale flower markets between February and the end of August.
Calla Lily Wedding Flowers.
Calla lilies are an extremely popular wedding flower used widely in bridal bouquets, table arrangements, button holes and venue decoration creating a modern and elegant feel. White is the colour of choice for wedding work and are available in different varieties and stem lengths thus offering different flower sizes and shapes. The only downfall of white calla lilies is that their natural season ends just before September starts. Because of this supply is at its lowest in August, which means that prices are at their highest in the UK’s most popular wedding month of the year.
