AMARYLIS CROCATA

This is supposed to be a native of Brazil, and to have been discovered there by the late Mr. Woodford. It was introduced a few years since, and flourishes in the stoves of this country. Its flowers are produced freely in the spring and summer.

It should be potted in a soil composed of light loam, peat, and sand, and increases itself without difficulty by offsets, which soon become strong enough to flower.
