Despite the less than stellar name, Crinum 'Li'l Stinker' is at or near the top of the list of the 200+ crinums we grow. This amazing Dave Lehmiller hybrid is a cross of the yellow-flowered, virtually ungrowable Australian Crinum luteolum and our own native Crinum americanum. Crinum 'Li'l Stinker' combines the best traits of both parents. The fast-offsetting clump is composed of very glossy 3.5' long leaves, and topped from August through October (NC) with 3' tall scapes, that terminate in clusters of 12-16 rounded, flat-faced, nocturnally-opening flowers. The flowers open buttery yellow, and deliciously fragrant around 6pm (NC), but by morning have aged to white with a yellow throat. Crinum 'Li'l Stinker' is a truly stunning and very unique crinum lily.
