Phaedranassa
A small genus of strikingly beautiful bulbs that are rarely seen in cultivation.  
Flowers are produced in an umbel and are tubular, most often in glowing
shades of deep pink or, more rarely, yellow.  In their native habitat (Ecuador
and Colombia) they grow in mountain rainforests, blooming after periods of
drought. They can be brought to flower in cultivation by withholding water
for two months to simulate these conditions.  Suitable for cool greenhouse,
container culture, or as a garden plant in mild climates.

moderate temperatures (less than 80° F), and if kept dry and
dormant in the winter can take light frost. Suitable for cool
greenhouse or outdoors in mild climates.   Zone  7-9.

Eucrosia is a small genus of bulbs that are mostly native to Peru and Ecuador, where they
grow in stamens, sometimes protruding from the flower tube by as much as five or six
inches.  The neat, symmetrical arrangement of the umbel, with the flowers evenly spaced all
around the stem, together with the lacy protruding stamens give Eucrosis a most exotic and
unusual appearance.  Given warm conditions, these bulbs are not hard to grow,  but they do
require greenhouse conditions in areas with cool or cold winters.

A small genus of  bulbs native to Peru that are very rarely seen in cultivation.  The
elegant greenish tubular flowers are usually produced in the late winter or spring and
are followed by large leathery elliptical leaves.  Native to warm regions, they require
greenhouse conditions in most climates and must be kept dry during dormancy.
