Everyone calls these lilies, but as I understand it, they're not. I could be wrong -- but callas are in the Araceae family, and lilies are in Liliaceae. So I'm not sure why they've been labeled lilies. Maybe someone who actually knows about these things will weigh in on the calla v. lily controversy. Read below the fold...
