Amazon Lily is a beautiful shade loving plant from South America. The shiny dark green foliage is very attractive. Occasionally during the year, large, sweet scented white flowers will emerge. Mature clumps can flower at different times of the year but more often it will flower in the spring. It likes shade and sheltered areas and makes an excellent potted plant. It can be easily planted in the garden. They are quite easy to grow. Just keep the soil slightly moist all the time and try to avoid frosting temperatures. The bulbs will go dormant if the temperatures goes near freezing.
