Crinum x gowenii 'Bob Stover' is a hybrid of the very hardy Crinum bulbispermum and the tender Crinum zeylanicum, discovered by Florida plantsman Nestor White at a small nursery in Temple, Texas, and subsequently named by Nestor. For us, Crinum 'Bob Stover' has formed a stunning clump, topped in July and August with 27" tall scapes ending in large clusters of nicely ruffled, fragrant white flowers with recurved petal tips, all highlighted by a pink stripe down the flower keel. We think you'll love this little known crinum lily. Crinums are very drought tolerant, but rich, moist soil will result in the best growth and floral show.
