Sprekelia is an amaryllis relative native to rocky outcrops in the Mexican mountains (sometimes called Mexican Amaryllis or Aztec Lily). This is an uncommon bulb only sometimes available commercially. In the north, this will perform best in a dry, well drained spot in full baking sun. In the south, some shade may be beneficial. The bulbs multiply readily to make nice clumps of narrow green leaves. These burst into flower in the spring and may reflower again in the fall. The brilliant red flowers look like an exotic amaryllis. They make excellent potted plants in colder zones. These can be grown outside in zones 7-10.
