American Maid is a new hybrid and we’re one of the few nurseries that offer this small lily.

Growing Conditions: Full sun to light shade. Clay, sand, or container mixes. Various garden soils and can take wet soil. Its winter hardiness is unknown but it might be tender.

Flowers: Dramatic white flowers with a pink stripe bloom mid-August in the heat of summer and then again in the fall after heavy rains.

Leaves: Like one of her parents, Crinum amercianum, American Maid (half native?) runs a bit and makes a low spreading mass.

How To Plant: American Maid likes to grow more shallow than other crinums. Plant it just 5 inches deep.

Where To Plant: Ours works well with Mexican Petunia, where you hardly notice them until they flower. Fine in regular garden soil but thrives in wet areas too!

Our Bulbs: This is a smallish bulb that never gets big so we ship a small, flowering size bulb (about lemon size).

This Crinum is native to North America…sort of! It has C. americanum, North America’s native crinum, as a parent.
