'Amarygia' is currently unavailable.
Amarygia is the name derived to cover hybridised and crossed varieties of Amaryllis and Brunsvigia. This hybrid has the virtue of producing quite large bulbs; a flower size and form more akin to Amaryllis plus being somewhat more frost hardy. The broad, strap-like, blueish-grey leaves are produced in pairs and usually lie close to or flat on the ground. They only appear in winter and rapidly die back in summer before the flowers are borne in late summer to autumn. The plants including the inflorescence grow up to about 60cm in height. At full maturity the bulbs grow to 200 mm in diameter and are covered with dry, papery tunics.
