The scoop on Crinum Powellii

Umbels of trumpet-shaped, deep pink flowers sit atop four foot scapes in mid to late summer. The scent is delicious, heavy and spicy. This variety one of the most cold-hardy; Powellii is recommended if you're on the edge of the hardiness range for crinums.

Why Grow Crinums?

  • Once established crinums need little, if any, care
  • Crinums produce stalks of large, fragrant pink flowers in summer
  • Form sizeable clumps over time with multiple flower stalks
Crinums are much loved in warm weather regions for their easy care (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.
