Jacobi Petiveri Opera, historiam naturalem spectantia
Gazophylacium (1702-1709)
James Petiver [1663?-1718]

497. Lilio Asphodelus Cap. fl. roseo 85.5; id. fl. albo.

This is apparently the source for the name Amaryllis capensis of the Gardeners Dictionary (1768), which Miller had previously called AMARYLLIS spathâ triflorâ corollis campanulatis æqualibus genitalibus declinatis.

Note: Petiver listed a white variety of the Cape Belladonna in addition to the common pink.
