Crinum lily

I have a crinum lily that was given to me.  It is in rather dry soil in my border, but in late spring or early summer it sends up scapes of blooms whenever we get a good rain.  This year it has been particularly prolific because of the ample rain we've had here.
One morning my husband and I were on the porch swing and I pointed out the lily to him.  At the distance from the porch, one cannot really see the detail of the bloom.  "That pale thing?" was my husband's question in asking which plant I was referring to.  I thought he should go by it sometime and get a closer look.  Here is a picture darling son took of it (taken in early June).


  1. What beautiful color. And WOW at the number of lilies.

  2. Very nice. I love those colors.
