American Maid is a new hybrid and we’re one of the few nurseries that offers 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 work 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.
