Marisco is not a reliable bloomer but when it does, step back! What a magnificent color for your garden. I have never tried to pollinate it as I am not one for hybridization so I don't know if it is a seed setter or not. I seldom fertilize the crinums so maybe it need a shot in the arm to bloom this yr. Water is not a problem it gets plenty of it. The scape is not tall.
