Crinum Sangria

(Crinum 'Sangria') KRY-num This purple-leaved hybrid has Crinum bulbispermum in its blood, so it is more cold hardy than many other purple-leaved crinums. In spring, 'Sangria' sends up 2-foot-long leaves (it will stay evergreen in frost-free climates). 'Sangria' crinum serves as a superb substitute for phormiums, though it is somewhat less upright. It is grown for its foliage alone or for its pink flowers, which appear in the spring. -Andy Cabe, Regional Picks: Southeast, Fine Gardening issue #120 Noteworthy Characteristics:  Long, purple leaves; cold hardy; showy, amaryllis-like pink flowers. All plant parts may cause severe discomfort if eaten, and sap may irritate skin. Care:  Grow in full sun to part shade and moist, but well-drained, soil. Propagation:  Sow fresh seed at 70°F, or remove offsets in spring. Problems:  Anthracnose, mosaic viruses, red leaf spot.
