Something different


Eucharis amazonica
This is blooming next to my computer screen in my office on a blustery, wet spring day.

I actually got this from my cousin who's family ran the palm tree plantation in Hawaii. Not sure if this is wild sourced or not, but my uncle spent a good deal of time in the jungles of central and south america.

I love the fragrance of this plant and it really does look like a Narcisuss on steroids, blooms a couple of times every year and the leaves are dark and glossy so it looks good in the office even when it isn't blooming.

Tropical river of moisture flowing in from the pacific all week says the weatherman.

Cheers,
Mark
