The toughest lily

The calla lily originally comes from southern Africa and can be evergreen, if there is enough rainfall, or deciduous, if faced with periods of drought. Needless to say it prefers the dark, damp banks of rivers and lakes.

Sometimes you can find callas with coloured flowers – these are non-fertile hybrids and cannot be grown with traditional methods.
