Bought this 4-5 years ago, at Dogwood. It overwinters in the basement, is brought up to the living room about March, and goes out into the garden when it is reasonable warm overnight. Long strappy leaves, pink trumpet flowers, several springing out of the top of the stalk. The original bulb has produced pups, and more than one flowered last Summer. I believe that they like to be confined in a pot.
Hybrid Crinum bulbispermum and Crinum moorei. Hardiest of all Crinum lilies, highly fragrant, soft pink flowers, up to 10 bloom per stem, rising 3-5ft. bulbs multiply to form clumps. Deep well-drained soil with plenty of organic material. The top 2" of the bulb should show on surface. Full sun. Moist in Spring/Summer. Native of South Africa
2009 The pot must be almost full of bulbs with 4 or 5 separate stalks which have bloomed through the summer, one at a time, the last one in late July/early August.
