Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral RandyRick On May 2, 2012, RandyRick from Dahlonega, GA (Zone 7b) wrote:

Planted a crinum schmidtii May 2012. This is a rare species like a more vigorous and larger c.moorei alba. Was once named c.moorei var schmidtii but is now accepted as a unique species. Both sets seed and produces offset bulbs, although both slowly. My c. Schmidtii came from Tom Perry aka seedman and was grown from a seed obtained by him from SA in 2000. pure white. Can be used to create hybrids with other crinum. Prefers bright shade.
