Amazon lily (Eucharis amazonica)
Eucharis amazonica is found in the foothills of the Andes mountains of South America, but it never reaches the Amazon region. Nevertheless, it is widely known as the "Amazon lily" in science, the horticulture industry, and the cut flower trade. First popularized in the glasshouses of Europe, it is now grown worldwide as an indoor plant or as a garden plant in the subtropics and tropics. Its flowers are fragrant, and are often compared to the daffodils of temperate gardens. As an indoor plant, it flowers best when given sun for part of the day. In the landscape it prefers shade or filtered light. All parts of Eucharis plants are reported to be toxic if ingested.
