Luscious Lilies


This Luscious Lily Bouquet is the ultimate in ‘white chic’.  The combination of two varieties of Lilies (Calla and Fragranced Oriental) is quite stunning.  With its modern and contemporary design it would not look out of place in a stylish boutique hotel, a modern kitchen, or simply an everyday home.  The bouquet is finished off with a variety of seasonal green foliage.

Product Description

Luscious Lilies. The Latin name for the Call lily is Zantedeschia which is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant, with some species (Zantedeschia aethiopica) growing to 1.2m tall, while Zantedeschia rehmannii does not exceed 60 cm in height, growing in clumps or clusters.

Roots: Contractile, emerging from the top of the tubers in Groups.  The stem: The underground portion is variously described as a thick underground stem (rhizomes or tubers). While the literature is confusing as to the exact terminology, generally the Zantedeschia aethiopica-Zantedeschia odorata group (Group I) is referred to as having rhizomes, and the remaining species tubers.The rhizomes are fleshy and branched.
Leaves: Petioles are long, spongy in nature, sheathed at the base and of varying length from 15 cm (Zantedeschia rehmannii) to 1.5 m (Zantedeschia aethiopica) in length. The lamina is simple, elongated and coriaceous with a variety of shapes, including triangular, oval (ovate) with or without a point (elliptic), heart (cordate), spear (hastate), lance (lanceolate), oblong, or circular (orbicular). 15–60 cm in length, 5–25 cm in width. The leaves are dark green in colour and feather-veined (pinnate), and may be erect or spreading with undulate margins. Some species exhibit transparent flecking (maculation), and are therefore referred to as maculate, while others are immaculate.
