Paramongaia weberbauerii is from Peru, where it is found on the slopes of the Andes, and also in coastal locations. The Andean bulbs grow in summer, while the coastal ones grow in winter, so it seems I have the coastal form. The flower is almost like an extremely oversized daffodil that measures 18cm (7 inches) across, and about the same from the ovary to the large corolla. It is only very distantly related to Narcissus, and comes from a completely different part of the world. The scent is heavenly.
Our climate here is very cool even in summer, so I have kept this treasure on a heating mat along with some other Peruvian species, where it has flourished. It is most closely related to Pamianthe peruviana. I have very few bulbs available, so I will be offering a bulb or two on eBay, since I don't usually have enough to list on the web site.
