Rating negative b/c I do not like crinums with runaway foliage that breaks and makes the overall plant look messy. However, I think most people would give this plant a "positive" as the flowers are very pretty and the lemon fragrance is positively intoxicating.

Mine is presently planted inground, full sun, with good access to sprinkler. But it's coming out....
