Crinum moorei (ex seeds from Silverhill Seeds) grown in containers here in 
central Indiana (USA) flowers outdoors in the shadehouse in August (late 
summer).  The plants are almost evergreen here, even though they spend the 
winter in a completely dry, cool but not freezing, and dimly lit to dark 
area.  They have at least some green leaves when they flower here, but I 
can't recall how many relative to their peak growth period

The seed were, I assume, collected from the wild.  I  planted them in 
summer 1997, and they first flowered about 4 years later.
