I'm hoping this might be the right place to ask about a Crinum variety that I have just discovered. This pink and white two tone group is near a lighter solid pink patch of Crinums. I don't know if it is a different variety, or if the lighter pink group has produced a hybrid. The interesting thing is that within the two tone group, half of them are a deep dark solid pink, & half of them are a pink and white two tone.
This patch of Crinums is in a neighbors garden. He originally bought pink Crinums from Brent & Becky's Bulbs and we are not sure if another variety got mixed in with the bulbs, or if this is a new invention...
I went to take a picture of the leaves, and there aren't any...
I think what has happened is I got my Amaryllis and Crinums mixed up. After talking with him today now he thinks that the bulbs were originally ordered as Amaryllis Belladonna and it may not have been from Brent & Becky's. He's going to look through a stack of old receipts to see if he can find where he got them.
Sorry for the mixup. We are pretty sure now that they are actually Amaryllis.
Even so, it is still an unusual color combination. Whatever they are, they are pretty.
Here is a link to some Amaryllis Hybrid bulbs that look quite similar to the ones in my pictures. I clicked on the Image Gallery below the picture on the link and I see that within this group of bulbs are many color variations. It appears that a person ordering this mix might end up with any of the color variations, or something inbetween. Still, I'm thinking the mix might be worth a try.
Here is the link to the Amaryllis Hybrids for any of you that might also be interested:
