Crinum ‘Walter Flory’
Smells like Hawaiian Tropic and coconuts. The flower is elegant and flared. The plant grows to have clean leaves and big round bulbs below the ground.

Growing Conditions: Optimum conditions range from full sun to light shade in hot climates.
Flowers: As a flower that tends to flare outward, this is a great cut flower. Flowers bloom on stalks with average heights of three feet. I love to pick these in the evening, as their coconut fragrance gets more intense at night.
Flowering Season: Flowers start to bloom in May and June (Zone 8). Blooming begins later if it’s in a colder zone. However, it will start to flower earlier in warmer zones.
Leaves: The leaf color is apple green and shiny. The leaves make a relatively tidy, low mound.
How To Plant: Plant to a depth of six to nine inches. Make sure it’s not sitting in water or a wet-root zone. Think of this as you would a shrub — plant it where it’s going to be for the next ten years.
Where To Plant: This one is excellent for mixing into perennial borders. We especially like this pale-pink flower with pale daylilies or in front of a purple chaste tree. It will tolerate a few hours of shade every day.
Our Bulbs: We ship one tennis ball size, ready-to-flower bulb. As with all living plants, be aware that they may not flower the first year.
