Hi Joe,

I also grow the same Crinum Cannoelands  given to me by David S.  It grows and flowers like a superior C. moorei - but with more flowers of good shape and forms a very large bulb. I suspect that it is a moorei hybrid backcross.

It grows well in full sun in a garden bed and should be able to manage  a damp wet spell, as long as it also has a short dry spell during spring to summer.  Its spring-summer deciduous in my garden and flowers heavily  from mid to late summer.  I have not yet seen it repeat flower but I imagine it would if there was were a number of rain spells during the summer to early autumn.
