Crinum Elizabeth Traub

Another crinum blooming for me this year is Elizabeth Traub. Its parentage are 'Cecil Houdyshel' and 'Ellen Bosanquet'. It is named after the wife of the breeder, Hamilton Traub.

This crinum is on its third blooming scape. The scape is about 3 feet tall and the flowers are magenta-pink. The pics above are taken on one of those scorcher days. This afternoon, two flowers from the third scape opened and they are a little darker.
