Crinum is one of the late-flowering summer bulbs. Crinum is big and usually best grown in pots as a solitary plant. If grown outdoors, bring them inside before the winter. If the bulb is well-protected from frost and remains in the same location year after year, it begins to flower even more profusely in the following years.
