Calla Lilies Continue to Bloom



My patch of cala lillies are continuing to bloom. I snapped a close up of the stamen because I was intrigued by the way it looked. Definitely click on the top photo for a super close up look at the frilly stamen.

Actually, what you are looking at (the yellow spike) is the spadix, which is completely covered with unisexual flowers. I _think_ the white stuff in your pic is pollen from the male flowers, and the female flowers either haven't opened yet or are all furthe down toward the base.

The "petal" is called the spathe.
