There’s lots of bang and fragrance for the buck in this compact, late-flowering star. This crinum is extremely rare in the nursery trade. Here’s an interesting fact: this is the flower on the cover of our book, Deep Rooted Wisdom.
Growing Conditions: This plant requires some shade.
Flowers: These are very fragrant flowers. During rainy summers, flowering is a bit more sporadic. The long, straight, mauve-pink buds are deceptive, because they soon open to pale pink, re-curving clusters.
Flowering Season: In our area (Zone 8), this one normally flowers late – October and November.
Leaves: These elegant, dark-green leaves reach a length of approximately two feet.
How To Plant: Because this is a smaller crinum, the bulbs never get very big. They should be planted at a depth of just six inches.
Where To Plant: This is the best crinum for a patio pot (or other container).
Our Bulbs: This cultivar never develops a big bulb. We ship flowering-sized clumps.
