Description

Normalmente es conocida como Cala, Lirio de agua, Alcatraz, Aro de Etiopía, Cartucho o Lirio Cala. La encontré el día jueves 16 de octubre del 2014 en el jardín de mi casa. Aproximadamente a las 5:00 pm, el día era nublado y frío. Esta flor se encontraba bajo de la sombra de un árbol y la tierra donde estaba sembrada estaba húmeda. Es flor muy fresca que no resiste las temperaturas calurosas. Me llamó mucho la atención por el hermoso color blanco de sus espatas las cuales le dan demasiada vista, pude observar que su tallo es muy largo y que su aroma es muy agradable.

Hospital admissions..!!!

http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/poisonous-plants-and-fungi/page-3
Plants of the arum family (Araceae) are the second largest group causing hospital admissions. Included in this family are:

calla lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica), known as arum lily in New Zealand
Italian arum (Arum italicum)
dumb cane (Dieffenbachia species)
taro (Colocasia esculenta)
elephant’s ear (Alocasia brisbanensis), also known as kape or ’ape by Pacific Islanders.

All parts of these plants are poisonous and cause severe irritation of the mouth and throat if swallowed. Most arum poisonings occur when children eat the bright fruit spikes of calla lily. This is widely grown in home gardens, and a common weed.
