The Amazing Amazon lily, the Eucharis Lily

Also known as Amazon lily (Eucharis grandiflora), is a member of the Amaryllis family and was originally collected along the Rio Magdalena.

 


This low bulbous plant has broad, glossy green basal leaves and glistening white flowers, trumpet-shaped (like a white daffodil!) and delightfully fragrant.

They are borne in clusters of 3-6 blooms on a 40cm stalk. The Eucharist lily is a tropical plant enjoying moist-warm conditions. It does not like cold nights, so a minimum of 5 degrees is required even in the winter. Grow them in pots on the balcony or high on a retaining wall so you can look up into the flowers.
