A world favorite, Calla Lily ‘Crystal Blush’ (Zantedeschia) is absolutely irresistible with its abundant, pure white trumpet-shaped flowers (spathes), delicately blending to soft pink as they mature, atop elegant, mid-green, arrow-shaped leaves. On display for weeks from summer to fall.

  • Rising elegantly on sturdy stems, this Calla Lily will grow up to 24 in. (60 cm).
  • Spectacular effect when planted in drifts through beds and borders. Great for containers and exceptional as cut flowers with a 10-15 days vase life!
  • Performs best in full sun to partial shade in moist and well-drained soil.
  • Deer and rabbit resistant.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.

Native to South Africa, Calla Lilies deserve a spot in the garden or at home. Whether used in borders, containers or as cut flowers, they always provide a spectacular effect with their rich, cheerful colors and their breathtaking trumpet-shaped flowers (spathe) surrounding a yellow finger-like stalk (spadix). And they are so easy to grow! With very little work needed, they will burst into bloom and add bright notes of summer color to the garden, or to your pots inside your home.
