Crinum lilies bloom like crazy and come back year after year. What more could you want in a flower?
Be sure to plant crinums where you won't need to move them. They'll reward you for the rest of your life. Says Greg, "I've watched old homeplaces where the people die and the houses fall down. Their flowers disappear, and a once-in-a-hundred-years freeze kills the crepe myrtles. The only things left are the crinums. They're pretty darned eternal."
