Crinum

geoffhandley(Shropshire, UK)July 17, 2005

I always coveted these after i saw a big old clump under a garden wall in Shrewsbury. So a few years ago I shelled out for one of the enormous bulbs and planted it in the best drained and sunniest place i could find - top patio by the entrance to the conservatory.

I really do like this shade of pink and it is a large clump of buds. My wife has found another flowering stem emerging today.

That is beautiful. Our crinum continues getting larger and sends up more bloom stems each year. It blooms continually for several weeks. It seems to be a 'forever' plant so hope you will enjoy yours for many years. EP

Here is a full view of the crinum in full bloom. It gets bigger and better with time. EP
