Nothing sets the tone of an event quite like plum, burgundy and black-colored calla lilies.
In its shape, a dark-hued calla lily is stylish, an instant classic. It’s also romantic, holding a sort of magical quality. But at the same time it’s mysterious. They say a photo is worth a thousand words; a calla lily is, too.
These qualities come with a cost, however, in monetary and health form. Calla lilies are notoriously higher-priced, which makes them an especially luxurious addition to a centerpiece or bouquet. And it cannot be overlooked that calla lilies contain oxalic acid and are poisonous to humans and animals if ingested.
We love the look of a mass of calla lilies, whether neatly stacked or packed together in a bouquet. Not to say a single calla lily, say, in a bud vase, can’t hold its own; it can.
