String Lily

I almost let other plants crowd out String Lily at the bird bath.

I moved one plant to the front into a bed with daylilies which are now out of bloom and some Purple Heart which makes a good companion for anything that blooms white.

This is not my favorite Crinum but it's certainly in second place. It is a native plant. C. americanum sends out little stolons, so has to be watched near a lawn or the babies get nipped.


  1. I don't know that one , fragrant ? Very pretty .

  2. The size of the Crinium (probably C. asiaticum) I occasionally see here has always intimidated me but I love this one in your garden, especially planted with the purple heart.

  3. What a pretty lily!

  4. Crinums don't grow in my climate, so i'm only familiar with them from blogs like yours -- but this variety is new to me. I find them charming. -Jean

  5. Very pretty! Crinums aren't hardy here at all but I wish they were.

  6. As with the persian shield, loving the purple foliage crimums.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
