Of course we don't  have real winters anymore.  That is the only one I have 
in the ground.  I have no room.  I have a super Ellen, an Ellen and a red 
white stripe whatever.

Dear Frank and all,

Well I guess I should have said they do self sow in that after seed falls, 
it germinates and develops, but without protection they do not survive 
winter. Sounds like you have enough mulch protection to keep them alive over 
that first winter. I bring new seedlings into a frost free area to insure 
survival.

They are definitely a very hardy species, but I doubt you will find them 
spreading around the garden in Zone 5/6.

What other hardy Crinum do you grow? Jim W.
