 Definition 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.

Question on plant parts

Quick question: are inflorescences the same as spadices? How do we want to handle spathe, bract, spadix, inflorescence? I'm presuming we don't want a link to each if the definitions are just going to be repeated. Aleta Curry 15:29, 4 December 2007 (CST)

The spadix describes the whole infloresense. The spathe is equivalent to a bract. Chris Day (talk) 15:32, 4 December 2007 (CST)

Hardly?

Well, I hardly meant "hardly insect-attracting"! LOLOLOL. WRT specific countries of origin--I'm sure I got read that somewhere, but I agree, let's remove, at least for now. Aleta Curry 15:35, 4 December 2007 (CST)
