The Calla Lily (Zantedeschia) is probably one of the most beautiful flowers on Earth. The flower exists in various colour variations and a number of species. Here in Mallorca, the white Zantedeschia aethiopica is most common. You will be hard pushed to find a traditional country house on this island where this lily is not grown with appreciation and esteem, without the need for a formal garden design. The flower is a very strong and sturdy plant, growing a horizontal rhizome stem to multiply and being able to grow in many soils and habitats.
The Calla is really native to southern Africa. In South Africa, the leaves of the Zantedeschia are used to treat sores. Many plants in the Zantedeschia family are poisonous in their raw state, due to the presence of calcium oxylate crystals. Even though, rumour has it that the leaves, crushed and applied to the brow or the temple were at one time used as a headache cure, again in South Africa.
