The scoop on Crinum Powellii Album

Glossy green foliage frames clusters of glistening white blooms on this lovely crinum's three to four foot scapes. The six pointed star-shaped flowers appear around Father's Day and continue through July. Crinum Powellii Album grows to impressive blooming clumps over time, creating impactful displays along foundations and walkways.

Why Grow Crinums?

  • Once established crinums need little, if any, care
  • Crinums produce stalks of large, fragrant flowers in summer
  • Form sizeable clumps over time with multiple flower stalks
Crinums are much loved in warm weather regions for their close to non-existent maintenance needs (they're all over the South growing unattended in abandoned home sites), showy blooms and fabulously fragrant flowers. Gardeners who live where winters are cold can grow these showy beauties in containers.
