Fact sheet: Crinum Lily

Crinum spp.

This large, coarse-textured, upright rosette of broad, light green, 4-foot-long leaves is topped most of the year with great clusters of fragrant, spidery flowers . A fine specimen plant, Crinums also make excellent underplantings for palms or other coarsely textured landscape plants. Plant four to six feet apart in a mass planting. Install a very low ground cover beneath and around individual plants or groupings to help “set-off” or display crinum lily. They accent any garden or landscape.
