Growing Conditions: This crinum requires full sun to light shade in warmer climates.
Flowering Season: Flowering begins in mid July for Zone 8. Blooming is always later if it’s in a colder zone, and flowers will show up earlier in warmer climates.
Flowers: This plant has trumpet-shaped flowers of pastel colors. In the evening, they open wide releasing a cloying, baby-powder fragrance. Flowers start to grow on stalks with a height of 42 inches. I love to pick these in the morning for a little fragrance and a long-lasting bouquet.
Leaves: This plant’s apple-green leaves make a low, very tidy mound. The flowers bloom above the leaves.
How To Plant: Plant to a depth of eight to ten inches. Make sure it’s not sitting in water or a wet-root zone.
Where To Plant: It’s so fragrant that it needs to be near a door, patio, or path that’s often used. It looks spectacular with Fireworks Gomphrena or lemon-yellow daylilies.
Our Bulbs: We ship large, ready-to-flower bulbs.
