Crinum 'Alamo Village' is a hybrid discovered by T. M. Howard in Alamo Village, Texas during the 1960's. Its ancestry is uncertain, but it has characteristics which suggest input from both C. americanum and C. zeylanicum. It has tidy foliage and very fragrant, light pink, spidery flowers.

Crinum 'Cecil Houdyshel' is a tetraploid C. × powellii (C. bulbispermum × C. moorei) hybrid made by Cecil Houdyshel. This plant has tall, sturdy scapes, blooms over a long season, and sometimes sets seed. Photos taken by Alani Davis and Jay Yourch.
Crinum 'Claude Davis' was hybridized by Claude Davis and is thought to be a seedling of C. 'Cape Dawn' and possibly C. × powellii though it is possible that it is a self of 'Cape Dawn', which will occasionally produce seed from its own pollen. 'Claude Davis' is similar to 'Cape Dawn' in the shape of the flowers & the general appearance of the plant. 'Claude Davis' has smaller flowers that do not open as wide and have a whiter center when they first open the deepens to a darker pink as the flower ages which makes it look more similar to 'Cape Dawn' with age.

Crinum 'Emma Jones' is a hybrid of C. 'Cecil Houdyshel' × C. 'Peachblow' made by Fred Jones circa 1950's & named after Fred's wife by Thad Howard. It has huge, fragrant flowers on 1-1.5 meter tall scapes which fall over if not staked. They will taunt you into thinking they don't need staking by remaining upright until the first bud opens & then falling; just stake it. The flowers look best the night they open, losing shape the morning after, but they are worth the extra attention. The foliage & the fragrance is superior.

Crinum 'Fragrant Lady' is a hybrid of unknown ancestry with pale pink, fragrant flowers. It was grown by Marcelle Sheppard from a seed in a batch sent to her by Lester Hannibal which were labeled C. abyssinicum. Photos taken June 2011 by Jay Yourch.
Crinum 'Glory' is a hybrid of C. 'Super Ellen' × C. 'Mrs. James Hendry' made by Jay Yourch in 2005. It has large, pink flowers with extra thick, waxy petals which allow them to last, even in extremely hot weather. The sweet fragrance is reminiscent of the pollen parent, 'Mrs. James Hendry', although not as strong. Photos taken June 2009 by Alani Davis.
