Hi Gang,

I got a small bit of this plant from an Australian email friend (Thanks 
David).  I have not given it the love it deserves and find that it has 
filled out the soil of a 5-gallon nursery pot.  So, I'm moving it to a 
permanent location in the yard.

My notes tell me it might be a C. moorei-derived hybrid, but not necessarily 
so.  I have a photo that shows it to be a very pleasant pink.

However, I have a couple of questions.

1.  Does it enjoy a sunny location?
2.  Does it tolerate sometimes-too-wet soil?
3.  Does it rebloom?

Mostly I just want to place it correctly, and I wonder if it has C. 
moorei-type growth preferences.  C. moorei generally doesn't do well here in 
the humid south of the USA, but some hybrids from Les Hannibal do very well 
(no idea how remotely they are related to wild-type C. moorei).



P.S. The Amarcrinum types continue to bloom, especially an unnamed 
clear-pink plant created by Les Hannibal.  This particular plant is a keeper 
and enjoys blooming in July and August, the flowers hold up in the Texas 

P.P.S.  The rains are over for now, but June and early July gave us many 
inches of rain.  Now it is just hot and humid; daytime temperatures are 
about 90 F (about 32 C), and nights about 70 F (about 22 C).
