Crinum powelli (close up)
Not sure if this is Crinum 'Grace Hannibal' or C. 'Cecil Houdyshel', but I think it's one of the two
A large bulb I recently purchased.
This is one of t he darker pink forms of this plant. It's growing in a 3 gallon pot and repeats its bloom.
A fine hardy "workhorse" of a Crinum. Very easy to grow and can bloom reliably even under poor cultivation.
Plant detail of emerging scape. Mine return every year in zone 7b without any protection at all. What a trooper!
