I love that deep pink bloom. How pretty! The silouette frames are a great way to display your gorgeous blooms today.

MN,
I had never heard of these before, but immediately thought they must be in the amaryllis family (yep, thanks to your source). Are these hardy where you live? I doubt they are for us, but they sure are pretty! We do have the hardy amaryllis, commonly called "Surprise Lilies" around here ... they put up lots of foliage in the spring, then die back. Then sometime in late July or early August, all the ones in town seem to pop up at the same time to bloom. They're a fun summer surprise, :-)

I love the color of this crinum. I have just started adding crinum's to my garden and can't think of a better plant.

Thanks, PG,Nancy IVG, Jan,
Reportedly hardy to Zone 7, I was happy they were hardy for me in Zone 6 on the edge of Zone 7.
