Winter care for Crinums.

Wed, 25 Oct 2006 08:11:21 PDT
This year I am trying something new with my hardy Crinums. 

They come back readily  each year here in 7b, but winter freezes take them down to soil level. It always seemed like a waste to have them start over from soil level each year, so this year I'm applying a deep layer of wood chips (8 or more inches) around them to see if the necks can make it through intact. As the winter progresses, I intend to top the beds with dried leaves.

Has anyone else in the winter-feeze zones done anything like this?
