description for "Calla Lilies: Zantedeschia 'Crystal Blush'"

'Crystal Blush' calla-lily is part of a beautiful collection of hybrid calla-lilies that are very colorful and offer such a wide range of floral use. The blooms are tall cup-shaped, upright trumpets about 5" tall and 2-3" across. They grow about 15-18" tall and come in bright yellow, white, soft pink, hot pink, yellow & red and lavender-rose - the best varieties available anywhere. They are excellent for use as cut flowers. Calla-lilies are natives of South Africa now grown in southern California and can be used in beds, low borders, patio pots or planters - also as indoor house plants. The foliage is attractive rich green and upright with sturdy, broad sword-like leaves. These bulb-plants enjoy rich garden soil. Treat them just as you would gladiolus. Callas are hardy in zones 9-11; elsewhere lift bulbs in the fall for winter storage or grow indoors. This 'Crystal Blush' variety has exquisite creamy white blossoms maturing to a delicate pink blush and is 1-3/4 to 2" in diameter. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
