Expecting Lilies

I bought five Ellen Bosanquet Crinum Lily bulbs at the end of year 2010.  After one and half years, finally it bloomed for the first time.  Love the hot pink color! I hope they can multiply as fast as what I heard.

They are located in a full sun area, may get a couple of hours of shade from the neighbour's coconut trees.


  1. Brilliant colour! Good things come to those gardeners who wait.

  2. Beautiful! I love the color.


  3. Beautiful, Ami! 'Ellen' is a stunner, and yes, she reproduces at lightning pace. She has been spread all over my garden these past few years. I just shared some with my nephew the other day. Keep an eye out for those hideous lubbers!

  4. Usually I would find some with only 4 flowers on a stalk.
    But your have many & they all look so strong and vibrant like rubies.

  5. Those are beautiful! I have a small grouping that haven't bloomed yet. I think they're thirsty. We haven't had any rain in a long time.
