This has become a very interesting topic.  Please keep up the lists!

Here we have two or three crinums growing out in the open nursery field, 
just under about 6 inches of mulch in winter:
Crinum variabile -- large plants that have not yet bloomed
C. [bulbispermum X lugardiae] -- blooming right now
C. bulbispermum seedlings

In protected beds, on the south and east sides of a heated greenhouse, we have
C. bulbispermum bloom size
C. 'Ellen Bosanquet'
misc. x-powellii type plants
C. 'J.C. Harvey' that thrives and blooms multiple scapes

Otheres are still being tested.
