Crinum Ellen Bosenquet is a hybrid crinum, a cross created years ago by a Florida gardener and named for his wife. This crinum flowers in a deep rose to crimson shade, blooms in the blistering heat of summer and offers up a spicy scent that is almost too good to be true. One of the toughest in this clan (a group in the Amaryllis family), Ellen Bosenquet is a colony forming crinum, spreading to form showy patches of lily-like blooms on tall, straight stems. The flowers are excellent for cutting.
