The delicate silhouette of the calla lily makes it one of the most preferred flowers for bridal bouquets and wedding flower arrangements.
In addition, the calla lily is durable in a vase. It could keep its freshness for more than a week, especially if the funnel is more closed at the beginning. The thick stem of the calla lily contains a lot of water, so professional florists with many years of experience in the field advise to pour less water into the vase.
On the other hand, this elegant yet mysterious flower is also often used in flower arrangements on sorrowful occasions such as funerals or memorial services. The French, for instance, consider the calla lily a traditional funeral flower and find giving it for a different occasion unacceptable.
Historically, the Romans believed that the calla lily was a symbol of passion and sexuality, which is undoubtedly due to its phallic stems and yellow cob in the center of the flower. In contrast, for early Christians, it was a symbol of purity and chastity. This is why in the Christian world these blooms are used precisely at funerals and weddings, symbolizing the purity of souls which take part in the ritual itself.
And while in Wales it was considered bad luck to grow calla lilies in your garden, in the Northern Hemisphere, they are a symbol of rebirth and resurrection, perhaps because they bloom around Easter, and therefore calla lilies are also known as the Easter lilies.
Furthermore, due to its grace, this flower has been drawn by artists throughout history. Jewelry is also often made with its shape, it participates in the decoration of textiles, as well as in the interior of premises.
