Some of the large Yellow Callas are:
Florex Gold/aka Millenium Gold/ aka Hybrid Yellow.  All tall with large cup 

Kapiteyn has also bred several yellow varieties, they have large cup size and 
are shorter (I believe they are bred to be pot Callas).
They are called:
Captain Sonora
Pot of Gold

There are hundreds of hybrids, I'm in the process of working on a database, I 
started one here…  
but I want to move it to it's own website.

There are a few colored Aethiopica varieties, the pink ones are called 
Marshmallow, Deep Throat, Glow, Kiwi Blush, and Pink Mist.
At one time Golden State Bulb had a photo of an Aethiopica that was slightly 
purple, I think they called it "Diva".

Thank you John very much for your comment about yellow callas.
I wonder if you might enlighten me on the large yellow callas.  What might
their varietal names be?

I would be interested in other species if there were white and yellow
versions.  I am interested in hybrids if they had the same or similar

Thank you for the interesting story of the many colors you have.

It even sounds pretty.
