This beautiful, sweetly fragrant, and long-flowering South African amaryllis relative deserves to be more commonly grown as a pot plant. The tubular cream-white flowers of this bulb are long and narrow with recurved tips. The leaves are narrowly lance-shaped. Best in a rich but well-drained potting mix, ideally receiving morning sun and afternoon shade. Give deep waterings when in growth and allow to go just short of bone dry when dormant. Keep above zero Celsius for the winter.
