CRAZY ABOUT THE COLOURFUL CALLA (ZANTEDESCHIA)
One petal that’s beautifully shaped into a spathe, is what makes the Zantedeschia, also known as Calla, so unique. With just a few of these long, tall flowers you can create a spectacular bouquet.
Due to the large colour palette of this cheerful flower you can use her for many occasions. For this reason, we placed the high-quality outdoor grown flowers from Kallaland by De Haas Calla’s in our Flower Pitch.
P.S. Currently we’re restyling our office, so our Flower Pitch is also receiving a make-over. Stay tuned!

GREAT PARTNERSHIP WITH THE GROWER
Due to our great partnership we always have a great assortment of Callas in our stock throughout the year. To empower each other, Kallaland and De Haas Calla’s partnered up in 2018. Due to the partnership they are able to provide Callas during the whole year. That’s because the flowers are grown at different locations (Spain and The Netherlands). Both growers pay a lot of attention to the quality of the flower.
Also, as a result of the different growing locations, the growers can use per season, per location which varieties and colours they want to grow. This way they able to grown flowers exactly according to the wishes of our customers. No wonder why their flowers were rewarded with the Dutch Flower Award in 2017.
