A stately flower that makes a huge impact all on it's own—in a stunning brides bouquet, a tall magnificent centrepiece, a single bloom boutonnière.

Callas are grown here in Canada, as well as overseas. There can be a significant difference between their appearance depending on where they are from, so if you love callas, I would suggest keeping the following in mind.

The Famous Calla Lily

Imported callas are available year round, but the blooms are a more tubular shape. It takes more stems to make an impact, simply because they are not as open as a local calla.

Local large white callas are easily available spring to early summer. They don't grow in a heat wave, so if the summer is hot, their season ends early. It is possible to get a variety of coloured callas in the fall and winter, although white a this time of year is more rare. All of the large local varieties have a beautiful curve to the petal, opening the flower.

Local mini callas are newly available year round. If the large local variety seems to be out of season, consider using these for the brides bouquet: it takes 50 to 60 of them, but it is stunning when it is done! The mini's also are available in a wonderful colour assortment: white, cream, yellow, pink, purple, and orange!
