Cardiocrinum giganteum

Jean Schwartz, my friend Andrea’s mother, sent this picture of her fav monster plant, a Cardiocrinum giganteum. Don’t you just love that name? The tame plant pictured gives no clues as to what is to come. It belongs to the Lilly family, Jean says that it grows to 6’ to 8’ or taller and has white trumpet shaped flowers in the summer. Yikes, nothing like adding a little impact to the flower garden!

Jean is ½ of Schwartz Landscape Architecture, the firm behind the much talked about landscaping at the Inn at Northrup Station in NW Portland. Love those palms!
