Description
x. powellii - up to 15 trumpet shaped, rich pink fragrant flowers often bloom twice a summer; attractive mid-green foliage; 30"-48"; whz 7-10; 24/26 cm bulbs; 1858.

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 mid through late summer on 2'-3' stems, towering above its sword-shaped leaves. It prefers rich, moist soil but tolerates drier situation; resents being disturbed, so don't move it, unless necessary.  Once it's been established, it may take a season to get reestablished before it blooms. . Wonderfully fragrant, it's a great companion to many perennials and other bulbs; 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.
