I've been walking around the university campus housing recently, and i found plants which are common in some gardens, but I still am not familiar with the names. It's leaves are similar to the Eucharis grandiflora I found last weekend in our backyard growths. Since Eucharis has white flowers, i am contemplating on joining it with this red ones, though i will still be looking for it in nurseries here.
Planted as a hedge around the lawn grasses provided a lovely contrast. Can you visualize where i will put the white Eucharis grandiflora?
I would like to thank Aaron Ang of Aaron's Gardening Blog for giving the name of this red amaryllis, also called the Peruvian lily or Eucrosia bicolor. Just like other bulbs it is propagated by separation of the offsets or small bulbs. It was reported that this species is sterile. But i am sure it can be propagated by tissue culture, however, since it multiplies fast tissue culture might not be necessary.
