Cardiocrinum Confined to Container?

Driftless Roots
16 years ago

I'm sitting here with a Saturday morning cup of coffee gazing out at the garden. Right now it consists of a mosaic of snow and brown leaf mulch. But that's enough to get me dreaming over the bulb catalog I've got laying here and Cardiocrinum giganteum has caught my eye.

Since I don't believe it's hardy here, could I grow it in a container? I would place it on my deck in summer and then overwinter it in my basement cold room that stays between 50 and 55F.

I really like the idea of having a giant lily-like plant.
