Last year someone gave me 2 bulbs and they called it a "milkwine lily". The bulbs were the size of footballs. He didn?t know anything else about them. One bloomed red and white hanging bells close to the look of an amaryllis. Could you tell me anything?

Sherry,

Milk and Wine lilies are popular old garden plants throughout the south. They are a group of plants from the Crinum genus with white petals that have a streak of pink or wine color down the petals, hence their name. They are survivors which thrive on little care. Give them full sun to part shade and they will give you many years of bloom.
