This collection of the native bog plant Crinum americanum hails from just south of Tallahassee, Florida, and has thrived in our garden for many years. The glossy, dark green, hippeastrum-like foliage forms 2' wide clumps that multiply from short underground runners. In late summer, the clumps are topped with 2' tall spikes, ending in clusters of large, fragrant, white, star-shaped flowers. We have found Crinum americanum very easy to grow in our moist bog and not difficult to flower as some have written.
