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.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Amacrinum memoria-corsii.
