Gardeners' Notes:

Positive dmj1218 On Apr 17, 2009, dmj1218 from west Houston, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

A Luther Burbank hybrid--most serious crinum grower's consider this one to be among the most beautiful and definitely the most photogenic of all hybrid crinum's. Seldom offset's, very slow to mature and attain blooming size (but when it does it rewards you with multiple bloom cycles throughout the summer), usually from tissue cultures, C. 'White Queen' is a cross of C. x powellii 'Alba' and C. macowanii (which gives it incredible cold hardiness).
