Swamp Lily – Crinum pedunculatum

Also known as River Lily, this plant is very hard and adaptable – shade to full sun, pots or in the ground, dry to soggy soils.  Strong green strappy leaves with a large, delicate flower, popular with the native bees.

The original plant was bought as tubestock from Kumbartcho, and has been moved several times. Now in the front garden bed to the right of the front door where it gets morning sun.

It has very large green seed pods which dry out and then germinate well.

The seeds germinate well in damp potting mix.  Babies of this plant are now on the verge and below the window on the north east side of the house.
