Gorgeous, flushed green petals with a deeper green heart. This verdant bloomer is prolific and reliable. Each flower is up to 7cm across on 35cm stems. Up to four open on a stem.
These bulbs are so tough, they are comparable to the old dependable Nerines or Daffodils. Plant them once and they will be around for decades to come. Once established, each bulb can produce two or three stems. Each stem will bloom with up to four or five flowers. Each flower is 6-12cm across.
Developed for gardeners, not florists, they can cope with all terrains, from snow on the ground to the heat of the tropics. They will grow and thrive in cool climates down to -15C, so even Southern states can leave the bulbs in the ground. In these areas they are semi evergreen, they remain evergreen in warmer zones. Like all Hippeastrums they can be grown in pots and bought indoors when blooming for display.

Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich, moist, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position and ideally keep the soil free of weeds. Water to establish then only if rainfall is low in active growth. Very suitable for containers too.
