Plate 13: C. xanthophyllum
Fig. 13: I first saw this yellow foliage Crinum
xanthophyllum in Fiji and thought it had a virus. Its source is
still unknown, and since no botanical description could be found I named
and described it in the Louisiana Society for Horticultural Research Bulletin
in 1971. The golden yellow foliage makes a striking show when grown under
humid tropical conditions. It needs acid soil.
