Description

Growing Conditions: We haven’t heard of ‘Lolita’ being grown north of Zone 7. Its parents suggest it may be cold tender.

Flowers: ‘Lolita’ stands up tall and strong, reaching a height of five feet. Flowers are a solid, rich pink with thickish petals. 

Flowering Season: It flowers heavily around the end of May (Zone 8) and continues into July.

Leaves: The foliage is glossy and neat. They’re big but not bossy or overbearing, and they make a mound that is less than three inches.

How To Plant: It needs full sun and normal garden soil with some drainage.

Where To Plant: ‘Lolita’ likes full sun to light shade. This is a statement plant; a single clump in front of a dark hedge becomes a sculpture.

Our Bulbs: These are our cantaloupe-size bulbs.

    This crinum is incredible! Give it room to sprawl it’s long, beautiful leaves. My first stalk of blooms is over four feet tall with beautiful fuchsia colored flowers.

      When anyone sees it in person, they want it. I think the symmetry of it is attractive.

    Just planted a nice sized bulb of Lolita, was very nicely packed and arrived in great shape. Unwrapped it and planted it right away. As I am new to growing crinum lilies it will be fun to watch it grow and flower. Here in South West Florida everything seems to grow well. Can’t wait to see it flower. Thanks

    Ms. Lovely Lolita is fabulous. I am becoming quite the crinum junkie, lol. She has a prominent space in a bed at the front of the house, so she can greet everyone next summer. I am super impressed by the MASSIVE bulbs you guys ship and by how well Tom packages them. You all are the best. THANK YOU!
