This large lily is a very versatile and hardy plant. It makes a great feature plant for the home garden, especially when large. It can be grown in a wide range of conditions from full sun to half shade or more. It tolerates poor drainage and clay soils, and can be planted successfully under established eucalypts. It is suitable for coastal areas and tolerates frosts. Swamp lilies also flower well in containers. Crinum pedunculatum is also hardy enough to use in street planting. The species is easily grown from seed, which should be kept moist. Seeds sometimes germinate while still attached to the parent plant.
