Members of the Crinum family are not the easiest to look after, they should be fertilised about three times a year. The leaves and flowers should be cut off once they have died. If you live in a very cold area then the bulbs should be removed from the garden in the autumn, and stored indoors in a cool place. It may take as long as five years before you see flowers from your Crinum lilies.
- Light Needs: Full sun to Partial Shade
- Watering Needs: Average Water Needs; Water regularly; do not overwater
Crinum plants have been called an "anti-social", since they do best when they do not compete with other plants in the garden. They can grow to be very old. They perform best in full sun (but not burning sun) so give them all they can get, and a well draining soil. Fertilize twice a year with a balanced fertilizer. They make wonderful specimens and very attractive pool plants for landscaping by a pool.
