The Calla, known as the genus Zantedeschia, belongs to the Araceae Family. It originated in southern Africa and was brought to Europe in the early nineteenth century. Named in honor of a famous Italian botanist, Professor Zantedeschia, it has become quite popular with designers looking to create a modern, high style arrangement.
Callas have become highly desirable in main flower markets throughout the
world and are often regarded as flowers for special occasions such as weddings,
parties and commercial work. Because they are the perfect choice for elegant
and sophisticated arrangements, they've become renowned by floral artists.
