The others will have to stay where they are, horribly determined to stay put. I broke a shovel trying to get it out. Huge bulbs and big fat roots that dug in
Wish I had thought someone would want them, had to toss a dz bulbs or more. Anyway, what I started this to say is, I am in zone 6b, these have gone thru several winters below 0 and have all thrived and bloomed every year,

This is the clump of soild dark red ones, but they bloom later.
This fountain bed has some Crinums in it, but I think they are all the pink ones.
Found this blooming this morning, some years the color is fairly intense, but some years it is not. Hoping it will brighten up as it ages. Red Hot Poker (Kniphofia) I have had it for years, but it just does not multiply. Not like a Crinum in that respect for sure.
