"The Calla Lilies are in bloom again."

Ever since Katherine Hepburn whispered that line in the classic film Stage Door, calla lily flower bulbs have been special to American gardeners. The pristine whites are wild flowering bulbs in South Africa, and even the new glamor colors are easy to grow. They're all great additions to the garden or in patio pots.

The Calla lily is a beautiful flower, oddly enough, a Calla lily is not even a lily, and it is in the Araceae family and is actually poisonous. The Calla lily is also known as the Arum lily so it can be called both names. This flower has different meanings to different people.

These Calla Lilies were shot at the Oregon Gardens in Silverton, Oregon in mid May.
