Traditional Medicinal Uses of Crinum moorei
Indications: Administered to both people and animals. Caution: Harmful to people or animals.
Crinum moorei starts flowering in December and makes a very nice display in a shady, damp spot. Flower colour can vary from white to pink. The bulbs can become quite big, so do not plant them too close to each other. They also form clumps that will eventually fill these gaps. The leaves of Crinum moorei die down in early summer and when it flowers in December, the plant is leafless. Leaves start sprouting again in autumn and make a lovely, fresh display in winter. Be wary of the amaryllis worm. (Wildflower Nursery)
