Amaryllis belladona from California GS19062019-2: 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (2)

Amaryllis belladona L.
     Syn: A. blanda Ker. Gawl 
    Common nameBelladonna-lily, Naked-lady-lily
Commonly cultivated bulbous perennial with generally one two naked stems arising in late summer, bearing few fragrant pink funnel-shaped pendent flowers.
     The genus is not recorded in our database, some confusion because Amaryllis belladona E. Mey. ex Steud is Nom. Inval., a synonym of Hippeastrum puniceum, a more common plant.
     There is no reason this popular ornamental in not grown in India. We have to find it.
     Photographed from Fremont, California on August 25, 2017.
