Care Guide

Requires full sun and a sheltered, south-facing location.

Plant the large bulbs with their necks showing above soil level in well-drained, moisture retentive soil, spacing 45cm apart.

Provide consistent watering, ensuring soil stays moderately damp after planting and throughout the growing season.

Large, trumpet-shaped blooms are produced from July to September on straight, strong stems 75-100cm tall.

Mulch with spent compost or straw during winter and avoid disturbing Crinum bulbs once planted.
