Wildflowers that grow in damp spots, marshes, swamps and stream banks in many parts of the world, Crinum produce showy lily-like flowers that thrive on heat and moisture. This makes Crinums ideal for use in and around ponds, next to streams or in greenhouses. In addition to the beauty these flowers bring to your garden, they will also add a touch of fragrance. Crinum's basal leaves are long and strappy and the mostly white trumpet-like flowers are supported on leafless stems. Perennial, they die back in winter and will grow back in the spring to flower in summer. Choose Large Dutch grown Crinum bulbs to get the best results.
