Hi Gang,

I visited some friends in Houston yesterday, they have not had a frost this 
winter, except for a bit of frost that accumulated on car roofs one night.  I 
was happy to see C. agustum in bloom and bud on December 31.  It was 80 F.  

Crinum agustum is a splendid winter bloomer if there is no frost.  Here, in 
Conroe, 50 miles north where I saw C. augustum in bloom, all my Crinum (except 
C. bulbisperumum) have lost their leaves due to frosts.
