Crinum Lilies

The varieties of Crinum Lilies that we see for sale are often referred to as Crinum Lily, Cape Lily and River Lily. Generally regarded as Deer Resistant crinums attract Hummingbirds & Butterflies and have Fragrant flowers.

Crinum bulbs are a part of the amaryllis family and are originally from South Africa, India and at least 5 species from Australia.

The white flowering Crinum powellii alba and the pink Crinum powellii rosea are well known and readily available for sale however lots of other species deserve a place in the garden. Crinum bulbispermum, originally from South Africa is widely grown and has been heavily hybridized and does well to zone 7 given proper care.
