Description

This deer and rodent-proof plant is a cross between Amaryllis belladonna and Crinum moorei that adores our hot, humid summers! Bold, dark green foliage is evergreen in zones 8 - 10 and deciduous in zone 7.  Soft pink flowers bloom in clusters of 10-16 atop 2'-2 1/2' stems. It's one of our favorite garden plants and is wonderfully fragrant! We picked one blossom from the cluster just to smell as we walked through the garden and set it down on our lunchroom table.  When we got back to the office two days later, we discovered it just as we left it...without water, and it looked just as it did when we put it there, making it an obvious candidate as a long-lasting cut flower! For us it seems to be more perennially reliable in full sun in rich, well-drained soil.  20/24cm bulbs; 1 per sq. ft., whz 7-10; blooms late summer - until frost; plant in containers in whz colder than 7; an all time favorite of ours; heirloom 1920.
