Crinum procerum var - Plant
Description for Crinum procerum var
This is a stemmed tropical Crinum with burgundy leaves. The flowers are a plus, but it s the foliage that makes this plant such an attraction.
Crinum procerum var. splendens is a large bulb. It has somewhat rigid strap-leafed foliage. The foliage is the color of rich burgundy. This strap-leafed foliage grows 3 to 4 feet tall and arches as wide. In autumn and intermittently throughout the year, a thick stem will rise holding a plump bud filled with a cluster of narrow, trumpet-like furls of flowers that open into a delicate array of white petals blushed in diaphanous wine color.
