A Sympathy card featuring a white Calla Lily in a glass vase and text ‘Thinking Of You At This Difficult Time’
The Calla lily is also known as the Arum lily and it symbolises beauty. It is a relative of an English wild flower known as the Arum or Cuckoo pint or any of half a dozen other names.
If you have ever walked in an English wood you may well have seen the wild flower. It likes damp shade, and in the late summer its pale green spathe that encircles the spadix folds back to reveal the cluster of berries that turn bright red.
The Calla lily, on the other hand, never folds back, but keeps its spathe wrapped around the spadix throughout its whole lifecycle. One has to look down and into the flower where one is rewarded with the sight of the beautiful yellow spadix looking as though wrapped in a delicate blanket of a single white petal.
