Crystal Blanca is a shorter, stronger, healthier version of Casa Blanca. I find that Casa tends to die out after a number of years. I started with 12, and now have none. I have every Chrystal I have ever planted. The pictures above show the same lilies in three different locations, because they were moved. None of my casas survived the move.
