This impressive plant is easy to grow and requires little care. In many mild winter areas this is a common pass-along plant - neighbors sharing excess bulbs with one another. In addition to its beautiful form, the grand crinum is an enthusiastic non-stop producer of huge fragrant flowers (unless cut down by frost and freezing weather)

Culture: This lily is happy in just about any type of well drained soil. Light: Prefers bright sunny situations but will grow in medium shade - especially in the hottest zones.
