Crinum lily queen
A giant lily like this can be the centerpiece of your landscape. Already impressive in size and growth habit, it occasionally tops it off by producing a long stem with an enormous flower.
Crinums bloom on and off all year. They widen at the base with their many suckers or "pups" - baby crinums - that you can remove or leave in place.
This is a moderate grower that prefers a well-drained area in full to part sun, though it will grow in shadier spots.
Queen Emma prefers Zone 10 and bordering areas of Zone 9B, though in a well-protected spot this plant may do fine in cooler regions.
Though it's moderately drought tolerant, this plant can take moist conditions occasionally and looks spectacular when planted near the edge of a pond.
