Last year, I asked about a Crinum that Costco was selling among their
spring-planted bulbs.  Based on the photo on the bag, consensus seemed to
be that it was probably Crinum xdigweedii.
Photo here:…

One of three bulbs that I purchased has bloomed.  I am sure you are shocked
(shocked!) to hear that it doesn't match what was pictured on the bag.
Here's what it looks like.


Plant habit:…

Buds are very dark purple.  Flowers are lighter, but definitely purple, not

Any thoughts?  It is perhaps Crinum 'Ellen Bosanquet'?
