Crinum amabile,Giant Spider Lily

Crinum amabile
  Giant Spider Lily
This large bulbous plant is native to Sumatra and is noteworthy for the broad metre long purple shaded leaves and the robust crown of red striped white flowers which are very fragrant. Getting it to flower outside the tropics may be difficult but the foliage is striking on its own.
2017 update: I currently don't have any plants available.
