Crinum Lillies

brunswickcounty(z7 or 8)January 15, 2006

Very chilly today here in SE North Carolina -- the wind is howling out of the north but it's supposed to warm up again tomorrow.

I'm told that Crinum Lillies grow like weeds in Louisiana and Mississippi and was wondering if anyone had any they'd like to get rid of? There is a nursery in Raleigh that sells these plants, but they are around $30 each, which I can't afford. There are some available on ebay at a cheaper price, but my computer blocks cookies (due to a browser hijacking a while ago) so I can't bid on anything there.

If anyone knows of a crinum source that's inexpensive, I'd appreciate it!

I have some "swamp lily" type crinum (the pink flowered kind)that need a good home. I think that you might need to plant it in a protected area in NC, but it grows like a weed in my yard.
