Crinum Powellii. Robust perennial. Likes to be in a south facing position, preferably in the shelter of a warm sunny site, in fertile, well-drained soil. In cooler areas cover with a dry winter mulch. The flower stem carries a cluster of about 10 large funnel shaped, fragrant blooms, in late summer or Autumn. As the bulb matures and multiplies further stems are produced giving you many more flowers along with a lengthier bloom time.
Top Size Bulb (24up)
August – September
1 bulb, 3 bulbs, 6 bulbs
Plant: April-May with tip of bulb just above the soil. Spacing 45 cm. Flowers August-September. Height 75-100 cm.
Hardy. Clump forming perennial. Requires full sun or light shade, along with well drained fertile soil. For best results feed with a slow release fertilizer that has high potash. These large bulbs are best in the ground due their size, the bulbs clump up quickly so will not perform well in a pot, they need plenty of root space.
Propagation: good luck! Joking apart, split the clumps and replant. (the clumps could fill a wheelbarrow).
