Hymenocallis harrisiana

Hymenocallis harrisiana

Hymenocallis harrisiana  One of my favorite bulbs.  It’s beautiful in flower and foliage.  It’s big, tough bulb but shy.  Fat gray leaves reach just 10 inches tall in May.  Flowers come the first of June.  Then it all goes underground again for the rest of the year.  I honestly look at this as a great attribute — you can mix this in with liriope or other short perennials and get that early summer thrill, knowing the handsome little bulb is hunkered down waiting it’s turn next spring.  This is an extremely rare bulb.  A google search shows that no where else in the United States (even ebay) offers this right now.  Normally $22.  Sale 2 bulbs for $20.

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily.  Once you get this favorite old pass-along-plant, you have it forever.  Spectacular orange flowers with black spots top the plant in June.  Then, tiny black ‘peas’ form on the side of the stems.  They’ll all come up — let them fall and make a mass or give them to friends.  3 bulbs potted up, ready to flower. $10.

 

 

 

 

 

Crinum 'Infusion'

Crinum ‘Infusion’

Crinum ‘Infusion’ is a new vivid pink. It’s a medium sized plant that flowers in late June and July.  $30

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salvia ‘Jenks Farmer’ (aka ‘Newe Yaar’)  A culinary sage that loves our heat and has spectacular blue, lavender flowers in spring.  Very hard to  find in nurseries but an amazing plant.  Lovely silver foliage, looks good through winter. Planted now will grow well through summer and be spectacular in spring — perfect with early Orange River crinum lilies.  $10.

Crinum bulbispermum ‘Jumbo’  The earliest and hardiest crinum lily.  Flowers in early April for us.  Earlier in a warm spot near a wall.  Since it’s cold hardy into New York and Indianapolis, this is a great gift to totally surprise a northern gardener who thinks they can’t grow crinum lilies.  Normally $22, Sale 2 for $20 or 1 giant size for $20.

    Are these sales only available on site for pick up? I live out of state and am unable to make it to your farm, though I would luv to visit some time in the future (will have to take vacation days to do so).

    • Jenks Farmer on June 16, 2016 at 9:31 pm

      These are only available for our open house event. We are not normally open, only a few days a year. Please get on our mailing list so you’ll get the invitations — the next will be in September.

    I bought several crinum lilies after your presentation at our garden club. However, I’m not sure of these flowers growing in my front yard. The plants is four feet tall with tiny orange flowers but when I look through your brochure I don’t see any lilies that look like these. Am I mis labeling them? I can send you a pic if you would send me your email address.

      That sounds like a daylily! No crinum have orange flowers.
