Crinums

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 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.
