Crinum lilies blooming!
I saw these at a friend's garden a few years back, they were in bloom in July and still sending up bloom stalks in November here in Zone 6b/7a. So I had to order them, the only source was Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
They are known only as " X amarcrinum" , a cross between amaryllis and crinum lilies. Completely hardy for me here, and they were planted in fall 2008, so this is their 2nd summer. I just saw the 1st bloom stalk pushing up last week. Once established they grow about 18-24" high (the bloom stalks) and rebloom profusely from late June through November here in Maryland just north of Washington, DC.
They are fragrant and such a beautiful color!
