A masterpiece of a flower. The snow white petals have a delicate tracing of cherry red that occasionally bleeds into the bloom.
Hippeastrums are extroverts; their large, eye catching flowers open on tall, straight stems to oohs and aahs in summer. They last well in the garden, 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 across a wide area of Australia, they are semi evergreen and will go dormant in cool climates, where they should be protected from frosts.
