Ruby Stars generally blooms spring through frost – and usually after a good rain shower.
Crinum lilies are a hallmark of Southern gardens and have been cherished and cultivated by gardeners for years.
Crinums produce fragrant flowers that gently nod atop 2- to 5-foot stalks. During summer these plants will be at their most colorful. During the rest of the year, a whorl of strap-like, evergreen foliage provides year-round interest in the yard in Zones 8b-11.
Crinums work well in the landscape because of their easy-going nature. Many crinums have been known to grow for years on old home sites or cemeteries with little or no care. They are resistant to drought, although some also don’t mind having their feet wet.
Planting and Care
While you can plant crinums year round , they are more likely to suffer from cold damage if newly planted when temperatures drop. Crinums have been known to thrive indefinitely so pick a place you’ll want to see them for years to come. While they may die back during an especially cold winter, their underground bulbs will help them spring back to life when the weather warms and rains return.
Plant your crinum bulbs up to their necks, the slender part of the bulb, in partial shade for best results. While they prefer part shade, crinums will grow just about anywhere. They are equally at home in dry sandy soils and on moist pond banks. Once established, your crinums will require little from you aside from occasional irrigation.
Crinums are often planted as border or bedding plants and the fragrant blossoms make great cut flowers. Planting a very low ground cover around your crinums can help these dramatic plants pop in your landscape. Remove old flowers as they begin to droop to keep your plants blooming and looking neat.
Another perk of crinums is that the plants are easy to divide, so you can add crinums to other areas of your yard or pass them along to a neighbor. While the bulbs you buy from the store generally only weigh a pound or two, our blooming-size crinum bulbs can weigh up to 6 pounds! Most of our Jumbo crinums weigh between 4-6 pounds each. Our Large Bulbs weigh 2-4 Pounds each.
