Crinum asiaticum

  • Crinum asiaticum


White, delicately-scented lily flowers

Crinum asiaticum, commonly known as poison bulb, giant crinum lily, grand crinum lily, or spider lily, is a tropical flowering plant belonging to the Amaryllidaceae family. Originating from the tropical regions of Asia and Australia, this perennial plant is prized for its exotic flowers and attractive foliage, making it a spectacular feature in the flowerbeds at our four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette ®, on the Côte d’Azur.

Crinum asiaticum has large, trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom in clusters on long, stiff stems. The flowers can vary in colour, from white to pink to purple, and are often fragrant, attracting pollinators such as butterflies and bees. A proud holder of the “Green Key” label and deeply attached to our eco-friendly commitment, our nature campsite is always happy to take part in protecting the environment in any way we can.

Adapted to the Var’s coastal environment

In addition to its striking flowers, Crinum asiaticum features lush, dark green foliage that promises to add a refreshing tropical touch to every garden. The leaves are long and narrow, forming attractive tufts that add texture and structure to the whole.

Easy to grow and undemanding, Crinum asiaticum thrives in well-drained soils exposed to direct sunlight or partial shade. It also tolerates salinity, making it the perfect partner to the gardens of your favourite seaside campsite! 😉
