Crinum 'Mrs. James Hendry' is a 1915 crinum hybrid from the late Henry Nehrling that's still an industry standard. Crinum 'Mrs. James Hendry' is a very compact and tidy crinum lily with glossy bright green, upright foliage. Throughout the late spring and sporadically into mid-October, the offsetting clumps are topped with 4' or taller sturdy spikes ending in large clusters of 14-16 very fragrant white flowers with a pink-lavender blush toward the tips. Crinum 'Mrs. James Hendry' is one of the first crinums to flower in the spring, beginning for us in late April and continuing into October.
