About Milk and Wine Lily

This old fashioned crinum lily is a low maintence plant that produces lovely, large, striped, lily-like flowers. The stripes are alternately wine pink and white. The flowers also have a wonderful faintly sweet fragrance.

Milk and Wine Lily is native to India. Flowering: June-August.
