Ammocharis are some of the many bizarre South African bulbs that make great garden subjects but are still far too little known outside of their native habitats. We have been very impressed with the performance of Ammocharis coranica in our gardens over the last several years. This native of seasonally wet, hot, sandy soils emerges in late spring with 12" long x 1" wide, glaucous, strap-like, ground-hugging leaves. Imagine a crinum run over by a steamroller and you have Ammocharis coranica. In mid-June in NC, the flower cluster containing 25-50 nerine-like, rich pink flowers emerges on a 8-12" tall stalk.
