How to Grow Crinum Lilies
Plant the large bulbs in full sun or filtered light in early spring. As moisture helps this large plant become established, a few water retention pellets in the soil are useful when planting crinum lilies. A mound of soil around outer edges of the crinum plant helps in directing water to the roots. Bulbs should not sit in water, soil should drain well.
Crinum flowers appear in late summer, offering fragrance and large, showy blooms. They are available in a range of cultivars such as pink-striped Milk and Wine, and the white flowering Alba.
A member of the Amaryllis family, crinum flowers grow on rigid, sturdy spikes (called scapes). In warmer zones, crinum flowers persist for most of the year.
