Plate 56: C. zeylanicum
Fig. 56: Crinum latifolium (L.) L., a member of the
series Ornatae, is native to India and Sri Lanka. There are several closely
related forms like C. latifolium, C. careyanum, and C.
herbertianum. All are good breeders but strictly tropical, thus their
hybrids need winter protection in case of frosts. Photo by D. H. Nicolson.
