|Sangria Crinum Lily
Clay, Well drained
|Crinum ‘Sangria’ is valued for its ability withstand colder temperatures than all of the other dark foliage colored crinums. Crinum Sangria has been succesfully grown this crinum in Zone 7B, but we’d still recommend this for zones 8 or warmer. Although valued for the foliage, this crinum does have a nice pink bloom that occasionally blooms during the summer.This low maintenance bulb should be watered regularly and planted in lfull sun to part shade. Will struggle to survive winter freezes in zone 7 or colder.
Originating in 1983 and discovered by Texas horticulturist Scott Oden, this gorgeous dark leaved hybrid is much more winter hardy than other purple crinums and graces gardens with its trumpet-shaped pink flowers. The Crinum ‘Sangria’ showcases dramatic glossy foliage that varies from purple to bronze coloring, with leaves that can grow to 2 ft long, and exhibits rosy magenta flowers that bloom in the late spring & again in the fall. The flowers cluster atop smooth sturdy stems after a few years of growth, but the bulbs can be grown simply for the pleasure of enjoying the showy foliage produced in the spring and lasting all summer and fall. They can grow tall, up to almost 5 feet in height!
