Bright white petals with flashes of red and a dark green throat. Each flower is around 15cm across.

Hippeastrums are extroverts; their large, eye catching flowers open on tall, straight stems to oohs and aahs in summer. They are simple to care for last well in gardens or pots and also cut for indoor displays.
In pots, they can be moved to centre stage when in bloom, and hidden behind the shed in winter dormancy.
Hippeastrums grow best in humus rich, moist, well drained soils. Though well drained is the most important factor. Hippeastrum grow Australia wide, they are semi evergreen and will go dormant in cool climates, where they should be protected from frosts – either lifted or grown in pots.
Generally red varieties flower first and white last, with the rest of the spectrum in between.
