Simply Calla is an initiative that not only allows the growers to show their amazing products, it also allows them to demonstrate to florists, garden centers, and other retailers how to best use them. It is a source of inspiration for the creation of interesting combinations of callas with other beautiful flowers and plants. Going the extra mile and showing the calla to its best in inspirational pictures and Insta accounts is one of the goals of Simply Calla. Enjoy this collage.

The Outspoken and Simple Style of the Calla

Callas have a way to give a peaceful feeling; they are modern and unique and they come in various colors. With their sleek and elegant pliable stems, they are easily curved into graceful silhouettes. The delicate blooms should be handled with care. Simply Calla is an inspiration platform for florists, garden centers, growers, wholesalers, and other horticulture professionals. The outspoken and simple style of calla is shown here by florists from around the world. It's available year-round, Callas stay fresh for 7 to 10 days.
