Crinum x powellii

Crinum are bulbous perennials, sometimes evergreen, that have strap-shaped leaves, and umbels of showy, fragrant, funnel-shaped flowers. Crinum × powellii is a bulbous perennial that forms a tuft of bright green leaves, and bears light pink flowers to 12cm wide, on tall stems (up to 1.5m,) from late Summer


Flowering

From Late Summer TO Early Autumn

The umbels of trumpet-shaped flowers appear in late Summer and Autumn

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Plant the bulb in moist, free-draining, deep, humus-rich, fertile soil, keeping the neck of the bulb just above soil level. This bulb will not tolerate water-logging, and may need protection in colder areas

 

Propagating by offsets

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Offsets are the baby plants that form at the base of some plants, and they are an easy way to propagate a plant. When the offsets have grown large enough to handle - and, hopefully, have some roots of their own,- gently break them away from the mother plant. Plant the offsets in a container and keep the plant barely moist (but not wet) until the plant is establishes, and can be planted out.
