Flowers: There’s just something about the way they hang; the stalks reach 3.5 feet tall and the flowers dangle off them. There’s something about the pure white and re-curving petals. ‘White Queen’ gets attention and press. In our Zone 8 farm, ‘White Queen’ flowers in mid to late May when spring is just winding down. She’s a showstopper.
Unlike some other crinum that repeat flower later, the queen only makes one appearance; after this spring bonanza of flowers, she rests for the summer.
