Crinum bulbispermum ‘Aurora Glorialis’

(1 customer review)


A stunning array of three colors in one flowering. It’s a compact plant, which is perfect for small gardens. This is our own selection; we evaluated, propagated, and researched ‘Aurora’ since she first flowered in our field in 2016.

One of the most cold-hardy of crinum lilies.  Rare and spectacular, currently grown only in a few botanical gardens and crinum collections in the United States.

Growing Conditions: Best in full sun or in the deep South in very light shade.

Flowers: Buds and new flowers khaki green. They change on the second day to light pink and on the third day they’re rich rose-colored. Multiple flowers open so you see all colors at once!

Flowering Season: In South Carolina, zone 8 flowers open in mid-April. In cooler climates, like Missouri,  they bloom late into mid-June.

Leaves: The foliage is steel blue, curving, and sculptural making a three-foot-tall and three-foot-wide mound.

How To Plant: Find a spot in normal garden soil. This species does tolerate flooding.

Where To Plant: This is a statement plant; a single clump in front of a dark hedge becomes a sculpture. Mix with blue perennials. Leaves spread out, so don’t plant too close to a sidewalk!

Our Bulbs: We ship our normal-size bulbs, which are about tennis-ball sized.

    I am very impressed with this plant! I ordered one bulb in mid-October of 2020 and planted it a week later. It did not receive any protection or mulch; nor did not receive a warm welcome to its new, north-central Texas home. This winter we were hit with three snowstorms, each dumping 6-8″ of snow. The last storm plunged our temperatures below freezing for a week. We experienced low temperatures in the single digits for multiple nights, with the lowest bottoming out at -4°F.

    Aurora Glorialis was unfazed. Today (May 4, 2021) the plant is sporting two bloom stalks with a combination of 10 buds and flowers on each stalk. The foliage looks healthy and strong. Even the small pup that was attached to the mother bulb on arrival is thriving. Thank you for making this plant available! I couldn’t be more pleased. ~s
