The Calla lily (Zantedeschia) is a genus in the Arum family of plants, native to southern Africa, and prized for their elegant, trumpet-like shape.
The name, which comes from the Greek word “calla” (“beautiful”), is actually a misnomer because the plant is not a true lily. Carolus Linnaeus, a famous Swedish botanist, made an error naming the plant. But despite the fact it was corrected later, the common name is still in use and relevant today.
Calla Lilies are associated with integrity and faithfulness, which is why they are often used in wedding arrangements. Purple symbolizes royalty and admiration.
