Native to South Africa, calla lily is grown as an ornamental plant, and most invading populations are found near human habitations in coastal prairies and wetlands. The calla lily's name is actually a misnomer as it is not a true calla or a true lily. The Swedish botanist Carolus Lunnaeus made an error naming the plant. The error was eventually corrected when German botanist Karl Koch created the genus Zantedeschia, but the common name for the flower has stuck. Calla lily is a common name for a flowering plant in the family Araceae, containing the single species Calla palustris. Calla lilies come in a wide array of colors; white, shades of green, pink, purple, yellow and orange. I think of all the flowers to photograph, calla lilies are my favorite. Calla Lilies unfurling are like a love story. The same bloom can be composed in different angles and perspectives, revealing curls, water drops from an overnight rain shower. Though calla lilies are always soft and beautiful to behold, they are toxic to animals and humans when ingested. Plant them away from animals and children. Requires frequent watering. Full sun will dehydrate them quickly without generous watering. The same can be said of marriage; love in marriage must be nurtured.
