crinum : hibernating plants






The poor crinum plant is hibernating now in winter. Actually, this morning, from afar, I saw 2 green things coming out, but it was too cold for me to go and have a look.
The leaves are big blades and the pink flowers are big blooms of lily. This clump is grown next to my garage.

Crinums are a large family, belonging to the amaryllidaceae group.
