Re: Crinum

Well- it has only had to survive for 4 months so far- so we'll see in the future. It is under my front tree so it is in shade until about 3pm- at which point it gets it's flowers cooked in this heat. I remembered to go take the pics first thing this AM.
It is too hot out here today. I just went out to look at plants in the front yard (it is shaded by the big tree at this time of day) and I still felt like I was turning into beef-jerky (or more actuately human-jerky). The only things that appear uneffected are the echinacea, rudbeckia, and Moonbeam coreopsis. The ruby coreopsis looks a bit crispy and lots of things are just wilty or sad. Even some of the salvia look a bit parched. Going back indoors it briefly feels chilly! But we keep the AC at 80 in summer- so the the chill idea fades quickly, it's just that it is 30 degrees cooler inside than outside right now.

My Crinum 'Ellen Bosanquet' has finally bloomed this year. It's been in the ground for at least 5 years with no joy, though the common 'Milk and Wine' has bloomed well every year.

I'm a bit surprised that it survives for you.

Beautiful, Theresa. I must have been on drugs when I thought my C. Ellen Basenquat had bloomed earlier this year because it is blooming now. <DUH!> I'll try to get out to take pictures of it. C. Fred Howard has not bloomed yet -- at least I don't think it has.
