          @alana Any secrets on how you got your Crinum to bloom? I have had my for six years but no blooms and I have tried sun ad shade. Any help appreciated. I got them fresh from Florida via Germany. :rolleyespink:

            @Victoria - I was surprised to get such a late bloom from my crinum. I had lots of flowers during the summer and thought that was it. Last autumn I dug up them up from the bed and put them in containers. Some of the bulbs got damaged when I moved them but I planted them anyway and I've been pleased with the results.
            The original bulb came from one of the members on this forum about 10 years ago and I planted it in a container. It didn't flower for two years but then it took off, quickly outgrew the container and went in the ground. Now the bulbs are back in containers:) No particular care given to them. I guess patience is the key.

              My Crinum didn't flower this year but it did last year for the first time, I did threaten it last year so it did as it were told, this year I forgot so no flowers . The pot too small on mine so I think I put it in the garden next year . RHS website says intolerable to water logging yet I saw one on the TV ( think carol klein garden visits ) one were growing in a pond , they not called swamp lilies for nothing. Maybe lack of water Vicotira + a good baking :noidea:

                          @strongylodon mine is in full sun all the time but gets a real good watering all through the summer. It can wilt easily if too dry. If you don’t water them enough you won’t get such a good amount of berries :)

                                @Sheal yes, the Callicarpa is a full hardy. Deciduous obviously, but the berries seem to stay for a long time-they seem like the last berry the birds go for. The varieties I have are all called “Profusion”.
