This has been an amazing summer for crinum lilies at Juniper Level. These mostly African species and their hybrids are wonderfully fragrant, hard-to-kill bulbs for the sunny garden. Above is Crinum x baconii ‘Maureen Spinks’…one of the showiest summer-flowering hybrids.
Another of the milk and wine striped crinum lilies is Crinum x digweedii ‘Stars and Stripes’…here’s a recent photo from the garden. It just oozes with fragrance!If rosy pink is your thing, Crinum ‘Rose Parade’ is looking quite nice in the garden. Crinum winter hardiness ranges from Zone 6 to Zone 8, depending on the species used in the cross. You’ll find the hardiness zones for each in our on-line catalog, where we offer 40 varieties…probably one of the largest selections you’ll find. Enjoy, and have a great weekend in the garden!
