Crinum 'Carolina Beauty' is a hybrid of C. bulbispermum × C. americanum. Unfortunately, the tall, thin scapes are not sturdy and require staking. On the plus side, the flowers are fragrant, the bulb tolerates cold winter temperatures, and it is a repeat bloomer. The closely related 'Seven Sisters' is superior.

Crinum 'Catherine' is a hybrid of C. bulbispermum × C. americanum. The scapes are not sturdy and often require staking but are better than many other classic heirloom forms from this group of hybrids which support scapes better after they form a clump and are no longer a single bulb.

Crinum Hannibal hybrid is hybrid of unknown origins distributed & presumably done by Les Hannibal. The seed parent which is reputedly C. abyssinicum, but the pollen parent is unknown. Unfortunately, it has sometimes been distributed as C. abyssinicum & pink C. abyssinicum causing confusion between this hybrid and that species, which already has a confused identity. Even if the seed parent is presumed correct the pollen parent is still a mystery. Compared with other Hannibal crosses, such as 'White Prince' & 'White Mogul', this hybrid generally begins blooming much earlier in the season, however, because of the sequential flowering, C. moorei is presumably involved. C. × powellii is a possible pollen parent, though not the only possible explanation of the earlier bloom time of this hybrid compared to the other similar C. moorei hybrids. The flowers are fragrant & the foliage is attractive. Photos taken 2006 by Alani Davis.
