- n. Plural form of calix.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
A thousand blossoms, white, red, blue and yellow, swayed on their slender stalks, opened their calixes to the bees, unfolded their stars to deck the woodland carpet, or proudly stretched themselves up as straight as candles.
Upon forty pounds of roses, with the calixes, sixty pounds of water are poured, and the whole is distilled over a slow fire.
