Eucharis × grandiflora is a natural hybrid of flowering plant in the family Amaryllidaceae, native to western Colombia and western Ecuador and widely cultivated as an ornamental in other regions.[2] It is a natural hybrid between E. moorei and E. sanderi. In horticulture it is often confused with E. amazonica, usually differing in its slightly smaller flowers. The English name Amazon lily is used for both species,[3] but is also used for the genus Eucharis as a whole (and for other genera).[4] Despite the common name, it is not closely related to the true lilies.

Eucharis × grandiflora is a perennial growing from an elongated bulb, with deep green leaves and an umbel (cluster) of sweetly scented white flowers on a stem 45–60 cm (18–24 in) tall. In cultivation it requires humidity and temperatures of 18–23 °C (64–73 °F) when in growth.[5][6]
