Crinum Lily Peppermint

netcub(5)February 20, 2013

I bought a bag of Crinum Lilies a few years ago at Costco. I kept them growing for about nearly 2 years then this fall i decided to let them go dormant. Ive stored them in the garage all winter, and just brought them in and cleaned them up a little bit. There was a little bit of mush near the top but the bulbs are all firm and seem fine. My question now is what do I do with them? How do i store them for another month or so before i get them back in the ground or a pot? Im also confused because I know these are recommended from zones 7-10 and I am in zone 5... I dont think they would winter over planted in the ground. This is what they look like now.

I have two crinum that I keep in regular garden pots that I made holes for, to put in my lily bed. Come fall, I pull the pots out and put them in the garage. Hopefully, this helps.
