The Crinum Lily - A Stately and Elegant Florida Lover Grows Easily in Florida’s climate. Pink or white flowers are your choice, and there are varieties that will grow in wet, swampy areas or dry sandy areas.
The Crinum is a bulb and I just read that some bulbs can weigh up to 40 pounds! These, of course, are very old crinums planted many years ago and found at old homesites or cemeteries according to the University of Florida Extension Service.
These easy going lilies can be neglected and still be beautiful; the foliage is stunning even if there are no flowers and it very often takes one to two years before they do flower. There is even a variety that likes to have it’s feet wet and can be planted on the sides of ponds and creeks - known as the swamp lily. The Crinum is also known as Seven Sisters and String Lily.
P.S. This started out as a Speechless Sunday post but I can never give up an opportunity to teach.
