Crinum mauritianum is endemic to Mauritius island. It was thought to be extinct untill it was re-found again in the 70's at the Midlands dam. It rather grows better along streams, near lakes, ponds or muddy areas. Flowers are white with purple edge and have a delicate fragrans. Can be seen in botanical garden now and time to time in nurseries.
