Crinum 'Peyton's Place' stands out, even in a crowded field of crinum lilies. Perhaps it's the towering 50" tall stalks, which start flowering in late June (NC), each home to 15-18 pure white, widely-flared, lightly fragrant flowers. Crinum 'Peyton's Place' is a cross of Crinum variabile x Crinum moorei v. schmidtii from Texas crinum guru, Dave Lehmiller...truly a stunner in the garden. To borrow a moment from the early 80s, Dave, we found the beef!
