These are known as tubers. The blooming time of calla lilies is late spring and that's why calla lily wedding bouquets are so popular in the spring. The word Calla comes from the Greek term for beautiful.
These eye-catching lilies symbolize innocence and purity and mostly used during the summer and spring season of weddings.
