HAVE: crinum x herbertii - milk and wine

beth_fl(florida)April 29, 2009

A friend of mine gave me a lot of these plants a few months ago. Today, he brought me a stalk with 11 blooms on it, and wow! Are they beautiful! My only problem is that now I want more lilies. If anyone is willing to trade some for some of their lilies, please let me know. Any colors will do, as this is the only kind that i have, but I have quite a few to do trades with.

thanks, Beth

My neighbor died a couple of months ago and I went over and dug up a bunch of crinums (with permission). I have potted about 6 small ones up for the Tampa Swap coming up. Others, at least 10, I stuck in the ground just about everywhere. Problem is, I don't know what color they are. I personally have a large white one that's over 20 years old. I have three seed heads on it now.

If you're coming to the Tampa swap, I can give you some unknowns, or the seeds for the white one. Or we can try mailing, but it's getting so hot here now that I'm starting to worry. I sent a priority mail package from Tampa to Orlando and counting the day I packed it and sent it, and the day they got it, was four days! (PO says 2-3 days).
