Crinums are bulbs commonly grown in the southern USA. Many gardens have them. All of the Crinums shown on
this page go dormant in winter [Dunnellon FL USDA Zone 8b] and all shown on this page are fragrant.
Crinum powellii ALBA. This is the first Crinum to bloom each season. Sometimes I have to protect the scapes
from freezes. The blooms are fragrant.
Crinum ELLEN BOUSENQUET. This hybrid dates back over 100 years. It is frequently seen in gardens in this
area. The plant is very dependable. Fragrant.
Crinum scabrum. This one can bloom two or three times in a season. The flowers smell like Peppermint.
This is a grouping of Crinum scabrum.
Crinum CECIL HOUDYSHEL. This hybrid is dates back around 100 years. A couple years ago, I found a bulb of
what appeared to be a Crinum laying on the ground at the Dunnellon garbage dump. This is the plant that grew from that
bulb. The flowers are fragrant.
Crinum X herbertii. Another great Crinum for this area. This one smells like Spearmint.
