I adore this plant! I grew it for 15 years in Atlanta GA before moving it and my family to western NC [zone 7a/6b]. It has withstood temperatures of 0 degrees with heavy mulch. It blooms for many weeks starting about mid-June. For me it's not evergreen. Frost kills the foliage. The only pests I've had are slugs but even those aren't to bad. My C. x powellii gets lots of manure and water and blooms heavily with many bloom spikes, each with numerous flowers of the most pristine white. It is lightly shaded in the morning till almost noon.

This crinum has graced SC gardens for many generations. It was once found in the yards of slaves as well as aristocrats. Pleasantly fragrant, waxy white (or pale pink) flowers contrast beautifully with long, lustrous, mounding, tropical looking foliage. With their long stems, they make great fresh cut flowers. Bulbs multiply quickly.
