Crinum ID?

river_crossroads z8b Central LouisianaJuly 26, 2013

Update: Plantmaven / Kathy, look what good advice you gave me! My crinum is finally blooming!!

It was an offset from the yard of a relative whose house was being sold. Tho' I had been told that it was Milk and Wine, now I don't think so. I realize there are many, many different crinum but just curious.

My relative had it for a long time so I would suspect an older variety. Googling found an old hybrid called 'Cape lily.' Mine is extremely fragrant but somewhat smaller than the one at Floridata (obviously larger with no freeze). What do you all think? Thanks again for your help, Kathy!

Thanks for looking!

Wonderful! I think you are right. It does look like cape lily. It definitely is not milk and wine.
Happy to help.
