Gardeners' Notes:

I am not a big crinum enthusiast, but I love this one b/c of its yellow foliage. Admittedly, this is an acquired taste as the yellow coloring can be seen as a sign of poor health to the unfamiliar eye. It is a slow grower and after 5+ years it has yet to bloom. I don't mind that, I grow it for the foliage color. I have seen a mature plant at a nursery and it is awesome. I grow mine in ground, in part shade and average water.
