This much sought-after crinum lily originated in 1983 as a cross of Crinum procerum 'Splendens' x an unknown Crinum bulbispermum (or hybrid). It was discovered as a seedling in the garden of the late Marcia Clint Wilson by Texan Scott Ogden. The dark purple reflexed foliage makes a dramatic 4' tall clump, topped in late spring and again in fall with 48" spikes of rosy pink flowers. Because of its Crinum bulbispermum parentage, Crinum 'Sangria' is much more winter hardy than other purple leaf crinums. Some of the material that is sold as Crinum 'Sangria' is simply the much less winter hardy Crinum procerum 'Splendens'. Thanks to Scott Ogden for providing us propagation stock from the original plant.
