Crinum 2020
« on: July 31, 2020, 01:46:54 AM »
Yesterday Crinum yuccaeides bloomed for its one day per year.  #2117, grown from seeds from the 2006 International Bulb Society SX.  The parents of these seeds were wild collected in the Cameroon, in Africa, probably by Dr. David Lehmiller.  First bloomed in 2019.  Large flower but not a large plant, this is growing in a 2 gal./ ca. 7 Liter pot.  This is my only surviving bulb of this species.
