Calla's And The Butterfly
Photograph - Photography/ Digital Art
A mason jar full of orange and yellow Calla Lillies with a butterfly on the side of the jar. This is a beautiful and very colorful summer image that would be perfect for any room in your home. I have added effects and textures so the image would have the look of a painting.
A number of cultivars have been selected for use as ornamental plants. 'Crowborough' is a more cold tolerant cultivar growing to 90 cm (36 in) tall, suited to cool climates such as the British Isles and north-western United States. 'Green Goddess' has green stripes on the spathes. 'White Sail', growing to 90 cm tall, has a very broad spathe. 'Red Desire' has a red instead of yellow spadix and appears to be rare. 'Pink Mist' has a pinkish base to the spathe.
Z. aethiopica and its cultivars 'Crowborough' and 'Green Goddess' have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
In order to introduce colours to the large white calla Lilies just like the many colour varieties available with the dwarf summer calla Lilies, attempts to hybridise Z. aeithiopica � Z. elliotiana have resulted in albino progenies, which are non-viable.
It has become an important symbol of Irish republicanism and nationalism since 1926 to commemorate the fallen of Easter 1916 and onwards.
It is the national flower of the island nation of Saint Helena, where it grows widely.
The cultivar 'Green Goddess' is listed on the New Zealand National Pest Plant Accord preventing its sale, cultivation and distribution.
