Crinum Bulbs

Crinum lilies are a garden favorite in the South, where many cultivars are cold hardy to grow at below zero temperatures. Some crinums are more tropical in cold hardiness and only grow in zones 8 through 10. Some crinum bulb hybrids can grow to an enormous size of 25 pounds, and the bulbs can be removed from the ground for periods of 2 years or more and survive in a non-planted stage as a dormant bulb.

  • Cecil Houdyshel Crinum Bulb
    The Ceceil Houdyshel crinum bulb was developed last century and named after the crinum breeder, after he personally selected the best pink crinum plant selection for further vegetative, clonal multiplication that resulted from crossing two species, believed to have been C. moorei and C. bulbispermum, still available to buy today from Ty Ty Nursery.
  • Crinum Asiaticum 'Variegated'
    The exotic fragrant flowers of the Crinum asiaticum are delicately formed, and the rare, variegated C. asiaticum has broad wide, strap shaped leaves that have parallel white striping running the length of the medium green leaf coloration. This Crinum grows best with some shading proving beneficial. Background shots of this video production used the fractal growths concepts representing plant morphogenesis growth and cellular division theories first explained by the famous mathematical genius, Nobel Prize winner and Yale Mathematics Professor, Benoit Mandelbrot.
  • Crinum Asiaticum
    The Crinum asiaticum has long, thin petals and can grow over 6 feet tall! and amazing specimen for any garden. This bulb is cold hardy in zones 8, 9 and 10 and in Hawaii, the plants can grow 8 feet tall with a trunk forming at the base supporting an umbel canopy of wide strap-like leaves at the top. The asiaticum Crinum is very salt water tolerant and is used in cluster plantings fronting sea resorts along the Atlantic Coast, where they flower practically every month of the year, definitely ranking as a top choice perennial flower bulb to grow in the Southern United States.
