Crocopsis Species in
Family: Amaryllidaceae

One species of bulbous plant from the Peruvian Andes.


A n attractive, easy and unusual bulb for the alpine house, though perhaps not in keeping with the usual run of alpine plants. Any well drained soil seems suitable, and a sunny site; best kept almost dry in winter. Propagation by seed or more easily by offsets, usually plentifully produced, which are borne on long stolons.
