Crinum  'Ellen Bosanquet'
Zoom In Photo:

'Ellen Bosanquet' is considered one of the finest crinum lilies for the home garden. It begins flowering in mid-June and continues through most of the summer. The large, gorgeous, amaryllis-like, reddish-purple flowers have a delightful spicy fragrance. The rosette of wavy, glossy, tropical-looking foliage is a great addition to the garden, even without the flowers.
