Calla Lily

Rarely a flower is known by so many different names. Besides Calla Lily, we also know the flower under the names Calla, Zantedeschia, Arum Aethiopicum, and Arum Lily. The latter name refers to the origin of the flower and the shape (calyx) of the flower. The name Zantedeschia comes from the Italian botanist G. Zantedeschi (1773 – 1846). It’s discoverer, Kurt Sprengel (1766–1833), called it like this as a tribute. Calla refers to the Greek word for beautiful, and also Aethiopicum has a Greek origin and means ‘sunbathed.’
