X Amarygia parkeri is a bigeneric hybrid of garden origin. The result of a cross between two South African genera; Amaryllis belladonna x Brunsvigia josephinae. The flower stem arises from the centre of a large bulb which is covered with layers of protective brown scale. Enjoying the warmth and protection of the south facing glasshouse border the spike can reach almost 1 metre high. The buds open to a rose pink trumpet, giving out a deep perfumed scent. Bulbs are found with variable shades of petal colour due to the nature of the hybrid.
