Crinum 'Sacramento' has a mysterious background, but is reportedly a Les Hannibal cross between two forms of Crinum bulbispermum, one of which originated in the town of Kimberly, South Africa. Crinum bulbispermum 'Sacramento' makes a slowly-offsetting 3' wide clump of arching blue-green foliage topped, starting for us in late March/early April, with 8-9, 3' tall stalks of flowers that have particularly nice red-and-white striped, anise-fragranced flowers. Since Crinum 'Sacramento' rarely offsets, it is produced only as seedlings which come true to type. For us in NC, it is the earliest crinum to flower.
