Last night, I ran across another reference to Crinum culture along the
Hudson River: Neltje Blanchan, in her The American Flower Garden, published
in 1909, stated that Crinum x powellii is "Hardy at New York if well
covered in winter". I assume that means hardy in the New York City area.

Hi Gang,

Jim has provided some wonderful data from the "old literature."  I wonder 
how much else is out there regarding Crinum and Crinum hybrids.  Keep up the 
good work Jim M.
