The Crinum genus varies widely, growing in America, Africa, Asia, and Australia. Likewise, there are roughly 100 different species of Crinum.
Where it is not hardy, this amaryllis relative makes a good candidate for bedding out or container gardening and wintering indoors. A sunny spot with moist but well-drained soil suits this pretty summer-bloomer, but it will also grow submerged in a water garden.
