Summer/autumn blooming bulb
One of Stephen Lacey's favourite autumn-flowering bulbs, Crinum x powelli has fragrant, pink, funnel-shaped flowers. It blooms most prolifically when its root run is restricted. As a result of this plants grown in containers should only be potted on when absolutely necessary. While it is described as hardy, gardeners in colder areas may be best growing it in pots so it can be brought indoors to avoid the worst of the winter weather. Plant in spring, with the neck of the bulb just above soil level.
