Calla Lilies vs Alcatraz

art4dais added on June 15, 2016 | Answered

I'm hoping you experts can help! Is there a difference between a Calla Lily and an Alcatraz flower? My destination wedding coordinator in Mexico is telling me that Callas are exotic and Alcatraz is local and, therefore, cheaper. He wants to charge me for a different color of Calla and said Alcatraz only is in white. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance!

The Alcatraz flower is simply a white calla lily. In fact, the word "alcatraz" is Spanish for "lily." Calla lilies come in a variety of colors, whereas the Alcatraz flower, to my knowledge, is only available in white.
