Calla lilies produce a showy, trumpet-shaped, flower-like leaf called a spathe, [pronounced speyth] which can be white, yellow, red, maroon, pink or purple. Some cultivars of calla lilies feature spotted spathes. The trumpet-shaped spathe holds the spadix, a finger-like structure that holds the smaller inner flowers, which are the plant’s true flowers.
The meaning of white Calla Lilies is “magnificent beauty.” They became popular in the United States when the movie Stage Door was released in 1937. It was the film in which Katherine Hepburn said, “The Calla Lilies are in bloom again”.
