(Giant Spider Lily, Queen Emma Crinum Lily, Queen Emma Spider Lily)

Native to the Seychelles and Mauritius in the western Indian Ocean, it grows and increases vigorously in suitable conditions, and blooms continuously, but most heavily in springtime. Over time, 'Queen Emma' grows larger and the broad strap-shaped burgundy-purple...

(Bengal Lily, Cape Lily)

Native to South Africa, the cape lily is a bulbous clumping perennial with narrow tapering green leaves overlain with a grayish bloom and bare, upright, unbranched flower stems topped by fountain-like clusters of large, fragrant, trumpet-shaped pink or white flowers. In warm climates, the bulb may flower repeatedly. In cooler climates it blooms in spring. Among crinums, which are mainly warm climate bulbs, it is perhaps the most tolerant of cool to cold conditions. There are reports of bulbs surviving...

Beautiful with large white fragrant flowers in summer and autumn, swamplily's foliage is elegant and graceful. An evergreen perennial that grows from bulbs, it is native to tropical western Africa. Its long but wide strap-like leaves are lush green and are held in a gentle upright V-shape. The midrib is like a keel on the leaf underside. Intermittently across the warm months, a short flower stalk bears long-tubed flowers that have a five-petaled white flower. Each blossom is usually fragrant of vanilla...

(Moore's Crinum, Natal Lily)

Large lily flowers of white to pink dazzle the eye in spring and summer over the dark green, strappy foliage of the Natal lily. Native to the moist soils of eastern South Africa, it is an evergreen perennial that grows from large bulbs that have an elongated neck.

The fleshy, think and long, dark green leaves are upright from the bulb and flop over with their length. Sometimes the edges are attractively wavy. In late spring to early summer, leafless stalks rise and bear five to ten plump flower...

(Scabrous Crinum Lily)

A bulbous perennial, the milk-and-wine lily has obscure origins. Many feel the plant is native to Africa, but it has yet to be found in a natural habitat anywhere on the continent. Initial botanical description of the species occurred from a garden specimen in Brazil. This crinum lily is notable for its large, six-petaled white flowers that have magenta-red stripes. Blooming happens through the warm months. The leaves are strap-shaped, wavy-edged and glossy. They emerge from the bulb in a tight bundle...

A bulbous perennial, it tends to be among the most resilient of all crinums for gardens. This crinum lily is notable for its large six-petal, trumpet- to bell-shaped flowers that bloom during the warm months. The leaves are strap-shaped and glossy, evergreen in mildest climates. They emerge from the bulb in a tight bundle and form an arching fountain...

Blooming happens through the warm months. The leaves are strap-shaped and glossy, first emerging light green and then blushing progressively deeper yellow with exposure to light. Foliage...

(Crocosmia, Montbretia)

A brilliant presence in the summer garden, crocosmias are somewhat cold-tender herbaceous perennials native to South Africa. Although represented by several species in the wild, they are best known in gardens by their hybrid cultivars. In summer, spreading clumps of sword-like leaves give rise to tall, slender stems topped with arching flower spikes. The tubular orange, red or yellow flowers have six lobes that flare at the tips. Plants grow from bulb-like corms that spread by underground stolons....

(Crocosmia, Jenny Bloom Montbretia, Montbretia)

Montbretias are herbaceous perennials native to South Africa. This hybrid montbretia bears long arching wands of golden yellow flowers that open from orange buds. The six-lobed blooms, which resemble miniature daylilies, rise on long wiry stems above pleated, erect, iris-like leaves in mid and late summer. The plants grow from corms which spread by underground stolons.

Plant montbretia in moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun to light shade. In colder regions, plant it near...
