Your Daily Dose of Natural Beauty, courtesy Advertiser Zenith Holland Nursery – Calla Lily ‘Captain Murano,’ a symbol of devotion:
Today’s feature highlights a vibrant Calla Lily splashed in pink speckled blooms. This perennial bulb can reach heights of 12 to 18 inches and is a nice choice for borders or patio containers. They require regular even moisture, and will grow in sun to mostly shade. As perennials you can expect to enjoy them for years to come.
Many flower meanings are attached to lilies, including as a symbol of humility and devotion. It all depends on the culture – for example, because of the Greek myth of Hera and Zeus, lilies are associated with rebirth and motherhood. This being said, Captain Murano or any of the Cala Lilies are suitable for maternal remembrances of all sorts. You can also plant them to get in touch with your own “inner goddess,” and either way they are a garden bloom repeat with meaning.
