This vigorous and fast-multiplying Thad Howard cross of Crinum moorei and Crinum erubescens is certainly one of the easiest to grow. The 40" tall, purple flower spikes of Crinum 'Summer Nocturne' arise from among the lush green foliage starting in mid-July and continuing until frost. Each spike produces 6-10 large, widely open, pure white flowers that develop a pale pink blush toward the end of the petals as they age. Each flower boasts a phenomenal sweet fragrance that perfumes for quite a distance around the clump. Despite flowering for a long time, the number of flower spikes doesn't make for a stunning show.
