This is one of the more unusual Crinums, Ellen Bosanquet will produce up to 8-12 lovely dark pink flowers per stem. The stems are quite stout and should not need staking, they will grow approx 3 foot tall. Nice and easy to grow, but prefer a sunny well drained position. They are also ideal to grow in containers as they can then be left undisturbed for many years. Plant bulbs with the top just showing and of course in a large enough pot to allow good root growth. Have a go as you will really enjoy the showy flowers, we plant them in containers and leave from year to year, protecting over winter from severe frosts.
