Crinum powellii album * Swamp Lily, Cape Lily

Crinum powellii album is a statement kind of plant. The white flowers of the Swamp Lily bloom at the peak of Summer when the foliage has dropped. Crinum powellii album grows in a dry shady location but does just fine next to a lawn. Crinum powellii album grows tp 4-5 feet tall and the leaves spread as far as 6 feet. The Cape Lily bulbs divide each time they bloom. In a wild garden I leave the dried leaves on. The bulbs in this garden have survived winter temperatures of 20°F.
