    Bog Lily

    Just picked a really nice plant at the one local nursery that has a half decent selection of bog plants. Crinum americanum, the Bog Lily, native to the SE US from NC on down. It's going into the barrel on wheels with my Lilium catebaei for right now, but as I increase the numbers of both plants i'll try them in the ground.

    Lol, pretty sure I offered you one of these during the NASC. :P

    I have lots of these. They grow wild in a ditch near me so every few years I thin them out before the other idiots notice them and start ripping up everything with no regard for population control. I also have the "peruvian daffodil" varieties as well. Enjoy it. They are easy to grow and will grow in standing water. The more moisture you give them the more they spread and the more offshoots you get.

    Also, if you get any extra Catesbaei bulbs... um... pm me? :P

    I seem to recall you mentioning the Bog Lilies, but I think if you offered I think I would have accepted. Or perhaps I was temporarily insane due to my eagerness to win the catesbaei? In any case it certainly is a beautiful plant, and I really like the fragrance as well. I got an extra catesbaei plant so I could cross pollinate. If they bloom this year I'll hopefully start some seedlings over the winter. If that works out, or if/when I get an offset I'll definitely let you know!

    Ok I was wondering how I screwed up! I have no problem admitting my technological incompetence! Thanks again Andrew!

    You know what... I don't think it was you afterall. It was someone else looking for "bog companions".

    Also, good luck with the pollenation! I've tried a few lillies myself but the problem is... the flowers fall off and I lose track of what I pollinated. So I don't expect results.
