Crinum campanulatum is a beauty but it seems to be genetically incompatible
with all Crinum species and hybrids I have attempted to cross it with. This
seems to be a common experience that other Crinum enthusiasts who have
grown this species have told me and I have not been able to find anyone who
has successfully crossed this species even after repeated attempts. Does
anyone know of or having any Crinum campanulatum hybrid successes? I have
never had much luck growing it in the ground and it is still one of few
Crinums I have to maintain in a pot.
