Just when you thought you knew your crinums, along comes Crinum ‘Ellen Bosanquet’ with a fabulous new shade of pink! You simply won’t believe your eyes when the big, deep-crimson pink blooms unfurl in summer – not only is the colour showy, new and unusual, but they bring with them that classic and powerful sweet crinum scent too. Blasting through your borders with a bright shock of pink, they certainly make an impressive feature.

Grow this outstanding new variety in sunny, sheltered borders and it’ll first produce a big display of lush strap-like foliage, then shoot up a sturdy tall stem topped with a fanfare of large trumpet blooms. Like all crinums, Crinum ‘Ellen Bosanquet’ bulbs sometimes take a year to establish before putting on this incredible display, but it’s well worth the wait. Not only will they look fabulous and flamboyant towering above your border perennials, but they’re a brilliant cut flower too and create the most luxurious indoor displays.
