Growing Conditions: This beautiful lily has bulbs that grow deep and have a tenacious root system, so it thrives in sand. But suprisingly, it loves pond edges and partly shady areas, too.
Flowers: These are delicate-looking and elegant white flowers.
Flowering Season: This crinum starts to emerge in July and continues to do so through August.
Leaves: These emerald-green leaves look great for four to nine months. Leaf length is 30 inches. The narrow, dark-green leaves distinguish this H. maximillianii from others. The leaves of this plant are definitely one of its assets. They are both thick and good looking all summer long, like a fat grass.
How To Plant: Plant in small groups, three inches apart and at a depth of three to five inches. The bulbs never grow more than four inches or so in width, but they pull themselves deeply into the ground.
Where To Plant: They love to be near a leaking fountain! They thrive in normal garden soil or in completely saturated bog conditions. They’ll grow in full sun and in light shade. This is a very adaptable plant.
Our Bulbs: We ship two flowering-size bulbs together.
