Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.


History at Camden Park

Listed in the 1845, 1850 and 1857 catalogues [B.220/1845].  It is probable that this plant, Hippeastrum pulverulento-vittatum and Hippeastrum splendido-pulverulentum are hybrids raised by John Bidwill or perhaps William Macarthur, 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.
