Crinum Ellen Bosanquet is very rich flowering; more trumpet-like flowers than others with lime green leaves; 24"-36"; winter hardiness zone 7b-10; 24/26 cm bulbs.

Although the flowers of Crinums look like lilies they are more akin to but much larger than the regular Hippeastrum and therefore have huge bulbs which are pest proof like other members of the amaryllis family. Clusters of long-lasting large flowers bloom and rebloom in succession in late summer on 24-36" stems towering above its sword-shaped leaves. It prefers rich soil but doesn't seem to care whether it's in a normal flower border that is subject to drought conditions or in a tropical garden where moisture is present. Resents being disturbed so don't move it unless necessary once it's been established. Wonderfully fragrant it's a great companion to many perennials and other bulbs in the border; 1 per sq. ft.; whz 7-10. If you live in a colder area mulch heavily or plant in a container so it can be moved inside easily during the winter like an agapanthus or hibiscus."
