Crinum bulbispermum ‘Aurora Glorialis’
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.
