An exotic species Hippeastrum hailing from Brazil. The soft green petals shaded with contrasting maroon striations. Flowers bloom for up to eight weeks on tall, straight stems above fleshy basal foliage.

If you choose to grow yours in pots, once in flower, they make good house plants. These bulbs are of flowering size.

In warmer climates Hippeastrum papilio will remain evergreen. Keep moist and fertilise regularly from early spring on for best blooms.
