|Fig. 31: Crinum flaccidum Herbert, a variant form from Mannum, South Australia. This inland desert form has evolved broad tepals (but no curved tube) due to the intense sunlight. Note the sequential flowering typical of pedicellated umbels. Past botanists list the species as in subgenus Codonocrinum. A number of geographical variants can be noted ranging over a 2500 mile area from Queensland and New South Wales into South and Western Australia.|
Fig. 32: Crinum flaccidum var. leutoleum. A
rare yellow form native to Flinders Range, South Australia.
Attempts to cross this variant with white-flowered broad-petaled African forms has given an occasional light amber-yellow hybrid.
