Crinum powellii x 1
1 20/24cm Bulb
This stunning bulbous perennial will form a mass of green strap-shaped deciduous leaves over time, topped with enormous pink fluted flowers which appear on 1.5m tall stems. Think Amaryllis but hardier and plant in a sunny, well-drained location in a sheltered spot and this specimen will multiply and increase in size and vigour each year. We’ve seen it planted against the side of stately homes on sunny south-facing walls beneath bay windows, a very clever idea as one can enjoy them whilst inside or outside the house!

Crinum are showy bulbous perennials, with umbels of fragrant, funnel-shaped flowers held atop leafless stems, rising above the foliage. Ideal for planting in containers, beds and borders.
On arrival, unpack your new garden additions and prepare your soil for planting. These plants are supplied as bulbs and should be planted double the depth of the bulb size to ensure they aren’t too deep or shallow. Please don’t be alarmed if your bulbs take a little longer to emerge in their first year or if they don’t flower in their first season. We call this sulking – where the bulb is instead focussing on root growth and settling into their new home. Avoid planting bulbs if the ground is waterlogged or frozen.
