Crinum bulbispermum ‘Orange River Strain’


Beginning with white and pale pink flowers, the older flowers turn to a rich pastel burgundy. This seed strain offers lovely variations with big, bold open-faced flowers. It is rarely offered by nurseries.

These are big, dramatic plants with full heads of pastel flowers, which bloom in April and May. They’re collected from high elevations in Africa and are amazingly cold-hardy.
