Product Description

This crinum lily makes an imposing presence in the garden. Dark green strap-like leaves may be more than 3 feet long by 4 inches wide. These are held erect and arranged in a spiral rosette to form impressive clumps up to 5 feet in height by 7 feet in width. The leaves emerge from huge bulbs that may weigh ten to twenty pounds! Flowers are shaped like tubes that flair open into a crown of narrow petals. The flowers are white and are arranged in clusters atop thick, succulent stems.

Location
This crinum is native to tropical areas of Asia. It is now a favorite landscape plant in Florida, the gulf coast, California and other warm climate areas.

Culture
This lily is happy in just about any type of well drained soil.
Light: Prefers bright sunny situations but will grow in part shade.
Moisture: Provide average water. Does well in dry soils and is drought tolerant.
Hardiness:USDA Zone 9 - 11. You can grow this crinum in Zone 8, but foliage is killed by freezing winter temperatures. I have several of these growing in Tallahassee, they suffer some degree of cold damage every year but quickly recover their attractiveness in the spring.
Propagation: To propagate crinums, dig up a clump and separate the small offset bulbs from the parent bulb. Plant these in pots or directly in the garden where they will quickly root to form new plants.

Usage
Use the grand crinum to create a tropical mood near the pool or patio. Use like sculpture to create a focal point in the garden or in an expanse of lawn. This big lily looks great with palm trees and ornamental grasses. Their drought resistance make them useful in xeriscapes. Also does well in containers and in cooler regions can be moved indoors during the winter. Features This impressive plant is easy to grow and requires little care.
