Common name: Cape coast lily
Botanical name: Crinum powellii 'Album' Family: Amaryllidaceae (Nargis family)
Crinums are majestic bulb plants whose massive, fragrant clusters of 3- to
6-inch lily like flowers bloom atop 2- to 3-foot stalk. Most bloom in late
summer and fall, although some types bloom in late spring in mild climates.
Arching out from the base of the stalks are strap like leaves 2 to 4 feet
long. The flowers of Crinums look like lilies. Up to 15 trumpet shaped, white
flowers often bloom twice a summer.
