My Crinum collection is a distant second to Alani's, he's been at it for
longer than me and also has a better climate for growing the more tender
species and their hybrids.  I have a few tender species growing in
containers on the deck, but the repotting, and especially the watering, of
container grown plants takes so much time that I try to focus on bulbs that
can stay in the garden year round.

I don't grow many Crinum,  but last year put a few Crinum asiaticum var.
japonicum seedlings out into the garden. Yesterday I noticed some of them
resprouting from the base.
