Calla Care Tips
May’s flower of the month is the Calla, a flower which stands out in style, simplicity and beauty. The Calla comes in many colours; white, red, yellow, pink, orange, green, black and multi coloured. The most notable aspect of the Calla is the beautifully shaped spathe. This is also the reason the Calla is considered a lucky flower. The Greeks and Romans associated the flower with festivities and enjoyment, because the shape of the bloom resembles a goblet used for drinking. Although many centuries have passed since then, the Calla has always retained this meaning.
