What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
More Summer Flowering Bulbs Crinum powellii
A hybrid raised by crossing C. moorei and C. bulbispermum, C. x powellii is relatively hardy variety of Crinum which is more suited to more temperate gardens. The pink, trumpet flowers are held on long, swan-like necks with strappy foliage which can be difficult to accommodate in some gardens. Plant so that the nose of the bulb is level with the surface of the soil and set 50 to 60cm apart.
