Crinum lilies

Zone Mossel Bay, South Africa, 6520 | Anonymous added on May 6, 2017 | Answered

Good afternoon, Can you please tell me how crinum lilies do in windy conditions? I am busy establishing a shady garden under an avenue of pine trees, with clivias, veltheimias, Mona Lavender plectranthuses, and would like to add my crinums to the group. We are living quite near the sea and are getting some heavy sea winds now and then. Would you recommend putting a few scadoxuses to the mix too? Thank you so much! Kind regards, Renée in Mossel Bay, South Africa

A Crinum Lily can reach 3 to 5 feet in height when mature. This height plant could be very vulnerable to high wind conditions.
Blood Lily may be a better choice at a mature height of around 2 feet.
