Plate 13: C. xanthophyllum

Figure 13 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.
