Crinum moorei 'Album'

18th October 2008

Not my plant flowering here - mine is a poor little poppet that I bought at a massive discount after the nursery growing it had starved it to a shrivelled speck! (Why do they do that? Is there some expert out there telling them that plants stop needing water as soon as you put them in a pot?)
The cupped flowers are very distinctive - the white seems to be more common than the pink in cultivation - and are reliably produced once the plants start to clump up.
