The derivative of the word calla is the Greek word for beauty — calla. The flowers have an interesting mythological history. Calla lilies are said to come from the ancient god Hera, the wife of Zeus. In the story, Zeus brought Hercules to nurse from his wife while she was sleeping. He wanted his son to have the strength of the gods. Hera awoke and pushed the baby away from her. Drops of milk flew across the sky creating the milky way and everywhere they landed on earth, calla lilies bloomed.
They also have been tied to Venus in Roman mythology. Venus saw the flower and felt her beauty was threatened by its pure white blossom so she cursed it with an unsightly pistil.
They were first cataloged in the 18th century by a Swedish botanist who mistakenly named the species calla lily. Calla lilies are not lilies at all. They are actually part of the Araceae family, along with the caladium and philodendron. Not long after, a German botanist realized the error and created the genus Zantedeschia, but it was too late. The name calla lily stuck.
By the 20th century, calla lilies had also grown in popularity in the U.S. They became a popular fixture in American art, particularly through the work of Georgia O’Keeffe. She painted several famous paintings portraying close-ups of the flower.
