Eucharis × grandiflora is a natural hybrid of flowering plant in the family Amaryllidaceae, native to western Colombia and western Ecuador and widely cultivated as an ornamental in other regions.
The Amazon lily are monocotyledonous, bulbous plants originating from the rainforest of the South American Andes of Peru and Colombia. This so-called “hothouse bulbous plant,” has large glossy leaves, deep green foliage, with ribbings similar to those of the familiar plantain-lily found in gardens. There are about 10 species of plant belonging to Amaryllidaceae (amaryllis family) and they all bear fragrant white flowers. The lily’s main flowering season is in winter although it can bloom several times a year in spring or during summer. The flower stalk, which for me appeared in December, resembled a slim version of an amaryllis stalk.
