The Q&A Archives: Eclivius

Question: I have what appear to be bulbs (?) that have wide green leaves and a bright redish colored flower. My friend said they are Eclivius. I can't find anythng under that name. What are they?

Answer: I'm not familiar with a bulb called Aclivius or Eclivius. I wonder if it might be Eucharis, also called Amazon Lily or Eucharist Lily. The leaves and the flowers resemble what you've described.
