Hippeastrum coronata unidentified

Unidentified Hippeastrum or related species.  Neither Amaryllis nor Hippeastrum coronata are listed by Herbert or Baker.  Probably a nursery variety of the day that has now disappeared.

Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.


History at Camden Park

Desideratum to Loddiges’ Nursery on 6th January 1845  [MP A2933-2, p.28].  Amaryllis coronata is listed in both the 1830 and 1836 Loddiges’ Nursery catalogues, copies of which are held at Camden Park [CPA], and this is presumably where Macarthur obtained his information.  I have found no further record of this plant and it may not have been grown in the gardens.
