FamilyAmaryllidaceae
GenusCrinum
Specieslugardiae Dwarf Form
Cultivation DetailsThe genus Crinum is a very large genus and very widely distributed to many parts of the world including America, Asia and Africa. More than half the species occur in Southern Africa. Growing Crinum has taught me a great deal about cultivation, as many of these species require specific cultivation. I urge the Crinum grower to study up on cultivation requirements for better, healthier bulbs and blooms. -In water inundated areas I have C. campanulatum and C. paludosum growing quite well. I use a sandy clay medium and totally emerse the bulbs in water for short periods during the growing season. Feeding can be done in between waterings with blood and bone.
Special RequirementsThis species thrives in dryish sandy soils. They can take winter rain and will survive in the rockery or raised bed.
