Crinum x powellii 'Alba' - POTTED

Plant type: Bulb

Availability : *sorry - out of stock, plse email to go onto waiting list
This is the pure white form of Crinum x powellii and is the hardiest of all the Crinum lilies with highly fragrant flowers during the summer months - up to 10 blooms each stem rising between 3ft and 5ft high. Grown in a sunny place the bulbs will soon multiply to form a good-sized clump with a ready supply of flowers. The leaves are long and narrow. Plant the large elongated bulbs in a sheltered, sunny place in deep, well-drained soil and incorporate plenty of organic material - the top 2" of the bulb should show through the surface of the soil. In less sheltered gardens, grow in large, deep patio containers and bring the containers into a frost-free place during the winter. Water well whilst in growth but keep dry in winter.
