This crinum typically blooms in July, with slender-petaled, fragrant white flower that are highlighted with long, wine red stamens. They are unusual, looking like nothing else in the garden. Originating in India, Crinum amoenum is both an excellent garden addition and a plant super well suited to container growing. (See Crinum Planting Guide for tips to produce more flowers.) This variety forms a nice clump and doesn't spread with runners as some crinums do.
