Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.

History at Camden Park

Listed in the 1845, 1850 and 1857 catalogues [B.221/1845].  It is probable that this plant, Hippeastrum pulverelento-vittatum and Hippeastrum splendido-vittatum are hybrids raised by Macarthur or Bidwill, although I have found nothing in the notebooks to verify this.  All parent plants were introduced to the gardens before 1845.  No descriptions have been found.
