Planting & Care
Getting a crinum to grow is easy, but getting it in the right location – from a landscape designing standpoint – is not. I’m saddened every time I drive by the Columbia Museum of Art, where a landscape architect put our crinum in deep shade. They’re suffering.
Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: (25 °F).
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- These gorgeous lilies occur naturally all over the world.
- There are dozens of American, African, and Asian species.
- Some crinums grow in deserts while others grow completely underwater.
These will produce several flower stalks during the warmer months with the majority of blooms coming in the spring and fall. These lilies will multiply by producing bulbs underground as well as from the seeds that form after the blooms.
