Amarcrinum memoria-corsii (Crinodonna) - An evergreen bulb that is the result of the intergeneric cross of Crinum moorei and Amaryllis belladonna. It produces evergreen, 2 inch wide by two feet long strap-shaped leaves reminiscent of Crinum and lightly-scented, large rose-pink flowers in umbels on 2 foot stalks resembling the flowers of Amaryllis belladonna, although they actually have a narrow curved tube closer to that of a Crinum flower. The flowers are quite fragrant and bloom from spring into summer and sometimes into fall. Plant in full sun to partial shade and provide moderate irrigation. Evergreen to 20-25 degrees F and cold hardy to around 10 degrees F. Our plants came to us unnamed but appear to be the selection developed by Fred Howard in California that is often named for him.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Amacrinum memoria-corsii.
