This crinum produces dozens of the fragrant trumpet blooms, each decorated with wine striped petals. Cintho Alfa kicks off the crinum flowering season, starting earlier than the rest of the clan, typically blooming from late May into June in zone 8. Count on statement blossoms and buds that are stellar too; plump packages of promise in light lime green with crimson stripes. This plant is bold, showy, fragrant, easy and super long-lived. Goodness - what else is there?
