Barbados Lily (Hippeastrum puniceum) is also known as Easter Lily, Cacao Lily, and Amaryllis Lily-
Although it is neither a lily nor a species of the Genus Amaryllis, it belongs to the amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae).
The plant is a bulbous perennial native to tropical regions of South America but it has become naturalized around the world with suitable climate.
The original botanical illustration featured on the magnets was done by Etienne Denisse and published in the lavishly-illustrated Flore d’Amérique (1843-46).
Etienne Denisse (1785 – 1861) was a lithographer for the French royal court and spent his early career at the botanical garden of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.
He was soon employed by the French government to work in the French West Indies where he spent years illustrating and collecting plants from the region and sending specimens back to France.
