Marcelle has created a new Crinum flower color; she has produced a

are durable as one might expect from C. bulbispermum hybrids; the plant itself 
seems cold-hardy and tough (at least for zone 9).  Perhaps, like many C. 
bulbispermum hybrids, it may be hardy into zone 6, or even zone 5 with special
