Flower of the Week- Calla Lily

14 Jun

 

This summer wedding season, calla lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica) , in all their vibrant color and size variations, are quickly becoming a favorite choice for outfit decorations, bouquets, room arrangements, etc. They are well suited for any ornamental need!

Also called Trumpet lilies, Arum lilies, and Pig lilies, Calla lilies have an elegant, swooping curvature to the petal shape and have large and mini sizes. They come in white, lavender, purple, pink, red, peach, orange, yellow, green, and the very intriguing bicolored forms.

Calla lilies are perennial and require part shade, and full sun in cooler climates. They are definitely not edible, but who would want to stop looking at them any how?

They are fragrant and  last between four and eight days, but look lovely dried if you want to hold on them to remember your special occasion!

Flower Of The Week

18 Jun

This week we’ll be looking at a succulent which isn’t a flower, but it does look like one.
Hen and Chicks

Hen and Chicks are part of the succulent family and grow in a rosette pattern. They get their name because they start out as one main plant (the hen) and the offspring begin as tiny buds on the main plant (the chicks). The chicks eventually take up root near the hen. Hen and chicks are extremely easy to grow, and are becoming an increasingly popular choice to include in wedding bouquets.
