Plate 39: C. moorei Hooker

Figure 39 Fig. 39: Crinum moorei Hooker. A Natal (now KwaZulu) species commonly grown in Californian gardens. It requires part shade and will outcross with other species, but is prone to mislead one by its inclination to produce maternal apogamic seed, so use it as a pollen parent. Some tetraploid forms exist. Greg Pettit reports having ten distinct forms.
