    Too cold I'd reckon. 

    I thought most Crinums were non hardy - unless you live somewhere very warm. I'm under the impression they're mainly greenhouse plants but I expect someone here will have better info and advice. image

    I think 'Cintho Alpha' is a white cultivar of Crinum x powellii. The pink ones are hardy for me.
