Description

The Crinum Lily is a bulbous perennial and spectacularly huge lily. It grows rapidly to over 5' high with 5' long sword to strap shaped leaves. They are exotic, fragrant, and exciting bell shaped flowers, that come with a lovely scent and are related to the Amaryllis plant.

Crinum bulbs are much larger than bulbs of its relative the Amaryllis (amaryllidaceae). Roundish, with a long tapering necks, bulbs of a crinum can be 12-16 inches in length.

Crinum asiaticum (Giant Lily) boasts umbels of 20-30 deliciously scented, spidery looking, pristine white flowers, 6-8 in. across (15-20 cm), adorned with slender petals and remarkably long protruding stamens with red filaments. Blooming from summer to fall (sometimes year-round in warm winter areas), the blossoms rise atop leafless scapes, well above the foliage clump of evergreen, semi-erect, strap shaped, fleshy leaves. 

Environment

They perform best in full sun (but not burning sun, partial shade from the extreme heat of the sun) so give them all they can get, and a well-draining soil.

Landscape Use

They make wonderful specimens and very attractive ponds and streams plants for landscaping by a pool


Properly preparing the soil for bulb planting is essential! Good soil drainage is essential for planting bulbs. If your soil has a lot of clay content, consider adding a bit of coco peat. Consider your sunlight requirements based not he type of bulb you have chosen to go with. Some plants might be happy in a semi shade environment under a tree whereas someone might require full sunlight.

The general rule of thumb for planting spring bulbs is to plant two to three times as deep as the bulbs is tall. This means most large bulbs like tulips or daffodils will be planted about 8 inches deep while smaller bulbs will be planted 3-4 inches deep. Planting depth is measured from the bottom of the bulb.
