Crinum americanum (Swamp Lily) 1g



Sharing is caring!

3′ tall bulb-forming perennial. Spreads by stolons and by seeds to form large patches. Summer-fall blooms are fragrant. They are pollinated by hawk moths. Sun or part shade. Average to wet soils. Somewhat salt tolerant. Very deer resistant. ( The plants were propagated from a naturalized population on Hilton Head Island. The source population has since been extirpated. Jenks Farmer, Crinum grower extraordinaire, suggests that these are not the native Crinum americanum but a closely related heirloom species. (Either way, they are easy to grow, smell good, and are beautiful)
