Amarcrinum is a hybrid genus between Amaryllis and Crinum. There are several variations possible and many species of Crinum can be combined with either of the two species of Amaryllis to produce hybrids with different scientific names.
In practice almost all the hybrids have been between Crinum powellii and Amaryllis belladonna. This combination and only this particular one - makes A. memoria-corsii.
This bulbous garden perennial has wide, deep green, tough, leathery, strap-shaped leaves to 60cm long. These are always decorative and never seem to be in bad condition! The flower colour and exact growth habit will, of course, will vary depending on which parents have been used.
The open-trumpet flowers are very beautiful and are usually in shades of rose pink and are nicely scented. They make a stunning, long-lasting display in late summer.
