Characteristics of Calla Lily Flowers
The Calla Lily is a classic wedding flower because of its simple elegance and beauty. The trumpet-shaped bloom can be found in a wide range of colors, including white, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and even black. You can also find them in bi-color varieties.
Meaning of Calla Lily DIY Wedding Flowers
Interestingly, Calla Lilies don’t actually look like most other lilies. Their shape is more reminiscent of a trumpet than the petals of a typical lily. This is because they’re not related to true lilies at all! They are part of the Arum family, which includes plants like Jack-in-the-pulpit and Philodendron. The scientific name for Calla Lily flowers is Zantedeschia, and they’re also sometimes called Arum Lilies.
The name “Calla” actually comes from the Greek word for beautiful, while “Zantedeschia” is named for Italian physician Giovanni Zantedeschi. Calla Lilies have been cultivated since the Victorian era, and they remain a timeless classic.
The shape of the Calla Lily also has meaning. It is often seen as a symbol of rebirth and resurrection because it emerges from underground bulbs each year. The trumpet shape of the flower is also seen as a symbol of majesty, elegance, and beauty.
No matter what you’re celebrating, our Calla Lilies are a stunning way to show your love and appreciation through flowers.

When ordering Calla Lily Flowers from Flower Moxie, the flowers will arrive fresh and ready to use after being processed and hydrated. The Calla Lilies will be shipped in flower boxes and wrapped with paper to protect the flowers during transit. Upon arrival, it is important to open the box and remove the Calla Lilies from the packaging. The flowers will need to be re-cut and placed in fresh and clean water. Calla Lily stems do not need to be fully submerged in water - only 2-3 inches of water is needed. Otherwise the stems will split very high up.

- Add flower food to the water following the packet's instructions
- Re-cut the stems every 2 to 3 days or as needed
