Crinum x powellii 'Alba' - DRY BULBS - 1 bulb

Plant type: Bulb

RHS Award of Garden Merit
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.

South African Collection


As a rule of thumb, bulbs should be planted in a hole, the depth of which is around 3 times the height of the bulb. We usually dig our planting holes a little deeper than this and then fill the base with some fine grit which helps with drainage directly under the bulb. Never plant at perfectly measured distances apart as this can look artificial – for smaller bulbs we plant in clumps of five to nine in a staggered group so that they look more natural when they flower. For full tips on planting bulbs please click on the ‘cultivation guides’ tab on our home page.
