The Crinum lily originates from East Asia, Australia and numerous islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Nowadays it is a widespread ornamental species that is planted everywhere in countries with warm climates.
Crinum is a perennial plant that reaches a height of about a meter. The bases of the leaves form a thick stem, which increases in height and thickness with each passing year. The leaves are large, red, delicate and very beautiful, as the leaf crowns give a very exotic look to the plants.
The flowers appear after 3-4 years. They are light pink in color, with a very pleasant and intense exotic aroma. After flowering, large seeds are formed, from which the plants can be propagated.
Crinum lily is an easy to grow plant. It grows easily in all conditions - in the sun and in the shade. If grown all year round indoors, it should be placed by the window. This plant does not withstand freezing temperatures.
