Crinum 'Candy Twist' is a found selection of Crinum x herbertii, discovered by the late Tom Perry that was subsequently named by crinum collector, Nestor White. Crinum 'Candy Twist' forms a medium-sized clump of 7' long glossy green, deeply-channeled leaves that reflex outward, forming an octopus-like clump. The clumps are topped with 30" tall spikes, starting in mid-May and continuing into August (NC), each topped with 16-18 large, widely-flared, fragrant blush pink flowers, highlighted by wide central raspberry stripes. The floral show of Crinum 'Candy Twist' is truly spectacular.
