Shire Wild Bulbs and Nursery
Amaryllidaceae Amaryllis


A genus of 2 species endemic to the winter rainfall region of the western and northern Cape. They make great garden plants for dryer climates or regions that receive a winter rainfall, popular for their large, fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers. Both species enjoy a lot of sun, require poor, well-drained soil and don’t need feeding as with many other amaryllids. Both species do well in large pots, planted with the neck of the bulb at soil level.
