Eucharis Amazonica. Frost tender. Perennial. Needs partial shade and humus-rich soil. Prefers warm, moist conditions and will thrive indoors as a house plant, or in the conservatory. The shiny leaves make a good permanent mass and the fragrant flowers appear several times a year on stems two feet tall. It is best to plant 3 in a pot, as the bulbs like to be touching.
