A definition or brief description of Calla Lily.

also known as Arum Lily, is the popular garden and horticultural name of some species in the genus Zantedeschia, which originated in southern Africa, which is neither a lily nor a calla nor an arum, nor is it a true flower; rather Calla Lillies are an inflorescence of tiny flowers surrounded by a petal-like spathe.
