Crinum Asiaticum is the botanical name for Crinum Lily Pink. They are big, warm, and moisture-loving plants that produce an abundant array of showy flowers in summer. Also, the crinum plant grows from the large seeds it produces or using offsets known as pups.
The hardy Summer flowering bulb of this plant produces large, fragrant, and pink tubular flowers during Christmas time. It consists of long, flat leaves that are dark green in color, emerging from the bulb neck, which should be planted just below the soil surface.
The crinum plant extends from 3 to 5 feet high at the time of maturity. Crinum Lily Pink is suitable for garden beds, mass planting, borders, pots, and container planting. These are the areas where their spectacular size and large flower heads make an impression for a sure.
Below are some of the essential Caring Tips:
- Sunlight: It requires at least 2-4 hours of direct sunlight. However, some hybrids even grow well in partial shade.
- Water: Nourish it with a good amount of water until they are more developed and flowering. Once developed, you can then reduce the watering frequency.
- Soil: Moist soil is the best and most preferable for its growth.
- Fertilizer: Feed the plant with a fertilizer rich in phosphorus to help it bloom.
