Crinum Lily


Vee13 added on July 24, 2016 | Answered

I have a Crinum in a 14 inch x 14 inch pot. It has been in the pot for 3 years but never flowered, although it has plenty of healthy leaves. It is situated on a stone patio and is in the sun from about 9am till 4pm. Can you tell me why it does not flower please?
