An easy care bulb that will live happily ever after in your garden. The white petals have deep red stripes and a narrow petal border.

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!

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 and pots, or 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 grown in a warm spot and protected from frosts. In too much shade they won’t produce flowers, so aim for a sunny spot.

Generally red varieties flower first and white last, with the rest of the spectrum in between.
