Crinum 2009 (last month of the year)
« on: December 01, 2009, 07:32:25 PM »
Hi all, today I had my C. x amabile blooming. It is a natural hybrid. It is strongly scented; each tepal is about 17 cm long.

It is just 1 meter high, it is evergreen. If you can grow in a heated greenhouse it is much more floriferous!

Alberto,

Lovely to see a crinum in such good condition. Here, Crinum x powelii, which is the one I grow in the open garden, is looking very miserable from the winter weather.

Another Crinum blooming now: C. nobile. It was reduced to synonym with C. giganteum on its turn to C. jagus. This crinum flowers two times in a year, one in July and usually in December with two stalks. This plants is also strongly scented; never had a single seed, even if crossed with other members of the jagus alliance.

nice flower and color, the form of the flower a little strange for a C. bulbispermum

Very nice, Ray.  Neither hide nor hair of flowers on any of my Crinum as yet.  Then again, they're so often triggered by strong rain, and it has been a while since we've had that.  ;D
Cheers.
