I am currently enjoying two Crinums hardy in zone 7b (and colder zones

One is 'Cecil Houdyshel', a tetraploid powellii-type, with blooms very
similar to the common x powellii, but a bit larger with fuller tepals. The
scent is very pleasant and stronger than the common form, though I haven't
noticed it carrying across the garden.

The other is 'Elizabeth Traub'. It has a wonderful, complex fragrance (and
great wine red-rose color!) When they first open, there is a delicate
vanilla fragrance that I don't smell on the second day, but the scent is
just as pleasing.
