My milk and wine lillies only bloom white with a faint pink stripe. I wish I knew what is missing in the soil. Any suggestions would be welcome. This is a beautiful picture of what it is supposed to look like. Luciee

There are several types of crinum which are white with pink or red strips that fall under the category of milk and wine. Some of them are species (occur in nature) and some are hybrids.

scabrum is one of the species types. Others are digweedii, herbertii, bulbispermum, and others

You can search pictures of these different milk & wine on the net.

some are not as brilliant as scabrum, but may be easier to grow,and more hardy in the colder zones.

I've never found the scabrum to be hard to grow - in fact, it grows like a weed with no care at all. In central Florida, these grow along fencelines and near old homesteads, completely neglected, blooming when the rain sees fit to fall in the spring or early summer.
