As flamboyant as the skirts in Flamenco dancing, these petals are hot to trot. The white blooms have strong red shading and patterns.

Hippeastrums are extroverts; their large, eye catching flowers open on tall, straight stems and yell look at me! Up to four flowers open on each stem.

Hippeastrums are versatile and grow well in garden soils and in pots. In fact they are so easy to grow they are usually flower better with a bit of neglect!

In pots, they can be moved to centre stage when in bloom and hidden behind the shed in winter dormancy. Plant the bulb so the neck and shoulders are just above the soil surface.

Hippeastrums grow best in humus rich, moist, well drained soils. Though well drained is the most important factor. Hippeastrum grow Australia wide, they will go dormant in winter. In cool climates they should be protected from frosts.

It is a good idea to keep Hippeastrums protected from slugs and snails. Generally red varieties flower first and white last, with the rest of the spectrum in between.
