Item details

~One Small Size Bulb bulb (One inch in diameter) Crinum 'Stars and Stripes' × digweedii (C. erubescens × C. scabrum)
Flowers will bloom in one to two years.

~This is a truly classic pass-along bulb of the South. It is a summer-flowering, sun-loving perennial bulb and once established is very low maintenance. They are hardy to Zone 7b (meaning down to 5 degrees F). Stars and Stripes Crinum Lilies have a very dramatic, dark red stripe down the middle of each petal.

~Crinum lilies comprise several species of bulbs that came to the United States from the Caribbean region up through Florida. This hybrid was created by T.M. Howard.
~They are tropical in nature and the large, thick fleshy leaves grow to about three feet tall.

~This hardy plant can withstand much neglect and can be found growing at abandoned homesteads, farms and cemeteries throughout the South. The bulb you will receive was found in Vidalia, GA three years ago. When I dug them up to transplant, there were roughly 80 bulbs. What a great find! I had never seen bulbs grow to the size of grapefruits.

~Plant your Crinum so that the round part of the bulb is below ground and the “neck” is above. They do very well in full sun. Water them to get established about every other day. Crinum Lilies also do well as container plants.

I hope that you enjoy this beautiful plant as much as I do!

Happy Digging!
