Eucharis grandiflora is a beautiful
shade loving plant from South America. The shiny dark
green foliage is very attractive. Occasionally during
the year white flowers will emerge. Mature clumps can
flower at different times of the year, but more often
it will flower in the spring. It likes shade and sheltered
areas and makes an excellent potted plant. It can be
planted in the garden in frost free places. They are
quite easy to grow. Just keep the soil slightly moist
all the time and try to avoid temperatures below mid
40's. The bulbs will go dormant if the temperatures
freezing. Try to keep the pot elevated from the ground.
Sometime fungus in the soil can attack Amazon Lilies.
