Plate 56: C. zeylanicum

Figure 56 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.
