The marsh calla is an aquatic herbaceous plant native to the American continent and in particular to the swampy areas of Canada, Alaska and the northeastern states of the U.S.A. It prefers temperate climates and shallow waters.

It spread starting from the northern regions to the eastern and southern ones. It is a rather rare plant, but today it can also be found in France, Scandinavia, Siberia and China, even up to Japan, provided that there are suitable climatic and soil conditions for it.

It is therefore extremely important to preserve its habitat and avoid taking specimens in the wild. We only supply from specialized dealers.
