The amazing Amazon lily

The amazon lily is not like what we would imagine , hearing its name. It is a beautiful, demure, daffodil like flower with a mild, haunting fragrance. It loves the shade, and flowers twice a year! So good for my shaded garden.The flowers last for a long time during the monsoon season. I have planted it in a pot, but I think I'll transfer it to the ground in a shady place once the flowering season is over.
The amazon lily is poisonous- all parts of it.


  1. My mum has this lily and we call it the eucharist lily. It is family to the amaryllis. I forgot to mention that I love your blog's new look!
