Calla lily

.
Calla lilies are one of the most beautiful flowers with a unique flower form. Calla lilies are so elegant that just a handful alone can make a stunning bouquet. White calla lilies are said to be a good luck charm for wedded bliss, they can also bloom year-round if cared for properly. Native to South Africa, they require warm temperatures and adequate water, but can be kept in bloom without too much fuss.
The derivative of the word calla is the Greek word for beauty — calla. The flowers have an interesting mythological history. Calla lilies are said to come from the ancient god Hera, the wife of Zeus. In the story, Zeus brought Hercules to nurse from his wife while she was sleeping. He wanted his son to have the strength of the gods. Hera awoke and pushed the baby away from her. Drops of milk flew across the sky creating the milky way and everywhere they landed on earth, calla lilies bloomed.
Meanings of the different colors:
- white symbolizes purity and innocence.
- yellow symbolizes gratitude.
- pink symbolizes appreciation and romance.
- purple symbolizes royalty and admiration.
- black symbolizes elegance and mystery.
- red symbolizes beauty and courage.
