Crinum Bloom. lo and behold,

crinumCrinum Bloom. lo and behold, the cut crinum has bloomed. so, now i know that they can bloom after cutting, even if bloom time is three days away.

as you can see, there are five small flower buds, only one of which has bloomed so far. this scape came from one of the in-the-way-crinums that i dug up from the area around the side door and relocated behind the garage early last year.

the older, undisturbed crinums have much larger blooms with many more per scape.

Great Idea.. Keeping flowers in the surroundings of Garage really makes the place beautiful. Garage is sometimes found the most dirty place in the house & by keeping that alive with flowers will be really a joyful thing.

Wow - I didn't know they would bloom after they are cut. I'll have to try this.
