Hi Ken and David,

I can't help David ID his crinums, unfortuantely. My own plants of Crinum 
x-powellii have never set seed.  You might try crossing x-powellii pollen 
back on to bulbispermum.

I have Crinum [bulbispermum X lugardiae] seedlings that seem to be pretty 
hardy (mulched) out in the nursery field here in the middle of USDA zone 
5.  C. variabile is also hardy out there.

I have small seedlings of CC. [variabile X bulbispermum], [bulbispermum X 
macowanii], [bulbispermum X graminicola], and one [lineare X bulbisperum] 
that will eventually be tested out in the field.
