Amaryllis crocata Ker Gawl.


Family: Amaryllidaceae

Genus: Amaryllis

History: 

First published in Bot. Reg. 1: 38 in 1815. Synonym of Hippeastrum striatum (Lam.) H.E.Moore.

From Bot. Reg. The same collection which two months ago enabled us to add the Amaryllis rutila to the list of this splendid genus, has in the present supplied another unrecorded species, superior in beauty to the former. It is said to have been found in the Brazils by Mr. E. Woodford; and received by the way of Lisbon by Mr. Griffin, with whom it flowered in the dry-stove of his garden at South Lambeth in May last, for the first time.
