CALLA (properly _Richardia_), Egyptian lily.--The calla is one of the most satisfactory of winter house-plants, lending itself to various conditions.
The requirements of the calla are rich soil and an abundance of water, with the roots confined in as small a space as possible.
The calla may be grown through the entire year, but it will prove more satisfactory, both in leaf and flower, if rested through part of the summer.

Calla was formed in New York City in 1997 by Aurelio Valle (guitar, vocals), Sean Donovan (bass, keyboards, programming), and Wayne B. Magruder (percussion, programming).
Calla's self-titled debut prized apart traditional song structures and reconfigured the components into subtly apocalyptic, cinematic pieces, at times evoking electronically processed Ennio Morricone soundscapes.
Calla subsequently made the transition to performance, a process that gave Valle, Magruder, and Donovan their first taste of playing together outside a studio environment.

Calla Lilies or Arum Lilies, as they are commonly known, are grown in large quantities by commercial growers because they are commonly used for decoration at Easter and throughout the spring and early summer months.
The flower spathes of Z. aethiopica, the Calla Lily or Arum Lily, are white tinged with yellow with a yellow spadix and it produces glossy, arrow-shaped leaves.
In areas where the winters don't produce very hard freezes, the plants will survive outdoors as long as their pots are completely submerged beneath the water; however, the safest way to ensure their survival during the winter is to bring them in a heated greenhouse or under grow lights in the house.

 Calla: Collisions (2005): Reviews
They still get a thumbs up in the sonic department, and their songwriting is certainly to my liking; but that quality of elusiveness that made their prior albums a journey of discovery seems to be missing.

That is not at all to say that Calla has gone the way of "poppy rock and roll beats" (as another reviewer puts it), not by a long shot: "Pulvarised", "So Far, So What" and "Stumble" are dim and gloomy, to say the least.
