From Plant Delights: [quote: ...originated in 1983 as a cross of Crinum procerum 'Splendens' x an unknown Crinum bulbispermum (or hybrid). It was discovered as a seedling in the garden of the late Marcia Clint Wilson by Texan Scott Ogden.]


My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Nurseries Caroliniana in April 2012 and planted it in the In Between Garden. I moved it to the Pool Lawn Border in April 2013.
