Plate 17: C. amabile Donn

Figure 17 Fig. 17: Crinum amabile Donn. A sterile hybrid from Sumatra. The blossoms resemble C. augustum but the bulbs are smaller like C. moorei with a long leafy neck supporting the spreading leaves. The bulb is known as the 'Queen Emma Lily' in Hawaii. Quite a planting exists at her summer home in Kauai.
