Bradley is a crinum for contemporary gardens. It works well in small spaces, containers and it has a bold, brilliant, modern pink color.
Growing Conditions: Full sun to light shade. Clay, sand or container mixes. Dry or irrigated garden soils (but not wet soil.) Tested cold hardy to Zone
Flowers: Wide open, dark pink sometimes called red, the color is uniform throughout the flower. Stalks emerge to 3-4′ feet, well above the leaves. Flowers emerge early to late July (in Zone 8)
Leaves: The leaves stay low and mounding so it’s great to mix in with other perennials or even use in containers. It has narrow, 3 inch wide, glossy leaves.
How To Plant: Bradley likes to grow more shallow than other crinum. Plant it just 8 inches deep.
Where To Plant: Because of its lovely spacing between foliage and the flower and its low mounding foliage, Bradley pairs well with blue salvia, caryopteris and small grasses. For a mass, plant three bulbs about 18 inches apart — slowly, they cover a 3 foot by 3 foot section.
Our Bulbs: Our normal size bulbs are about the size of a tennis ball and ready to send up a flower. Our giant size bulbs are grapefruit size and may give more flowers in the first year.
Bradley is an Australian selection and a favorite among garden designers.
