Dear John, Kevin et al;
	So the name 'Splendens' is an invalid cultivar, but there are 
a variety of species and hybrids with red/purple leaves. It would be 
best if new introductions are given real cv names. It they are not 
vegetatively propagated, but seed grown too, they constitute a 'group 

	So a red leafed Crinum I have might be any of a variety of 
species (although C. (asiaticum/procerum) is likeliest) with the name 
Crinum asiaticum var. procerum 'Red Leaf Group' ( based on ICNCP
