Crinum moorei - POTTED

Plant type: Bulb

Crinum moorei is wonderful species from South Africa and forms hug bulbs with an extremely large base. The leaves are long and wide and lack the 'V' shape found in Crinum x powellii. Over the summer it produces stems bearing up to 10 vanilla-fragranced soft-pink flowers (shorter and wider than Crinum x powellii). This makes an excellent conservatory plant in the ground or a large pot, or will settle at the base of a shetered sunny wall where frosts are only slight. Water and feed well whilst in growth but keep dry in winter.
