Synonym: Eucharis amazonica
This native of Central and Southern America is a great plant. It is considered a bulbous perennial and can bloom twice a year under the right conditions. The flower stalks resemble a Daffodil and bear 3 to 10 fragrant flowers each. They are easy to grow inside and enjoy a shady spot in the garden with plenty of water during the summer. By all accounts it is a very long lived plant whose cultivation can bring years of enjoyment.
We are having a sleet storm out today. It is windy and really raw outside. I had an appointment to look at a new garden today but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
